OUR COMMON GROUND discusses the critical elements of how to move the slogan to the movement throughout the Black community. How and where we participate and input into the strategic plan and agenda.

The Black Lives Matter movement was born out of the pain and injustice of Trayvon Martin's death in 2012 and gathered momentum in the wake of the killings of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray, Walter Scott, Tamir Rice and far too many others. The significance of this emergence was not so much the movement as it was the cry of our people declaring that “Black Lives Matter”. A cry for a need for a new liberation uprising for Black people in America. #BlackLivesMatter as a slogan met the need of Black people to declare its pain, loudly and precisely. Moving that slogan as the undergird of a movement is the hard part. Figuring how we ignite political and social transformation -- not just marches, Twitter feeds and shouting matches on- and offline is the real challenge.  Learn more and share our broadcast.
