Here’s a Quick, Beautiful Lesson on Black History


“Deep in my heart, I know everything is going to be alright. #AllLivesMatter,” states musician, Raury in the description of his new video “Fly”.

If you could stomach the news over the past year, you should be familiar with the current police brutality cases in the United States. It’s like some sick agenda that’s constantly being swept under the rug.

However, we have talented musicians like Raury and directors like Malia Murray, who team up to create works of art that allows us to reflect and gives us hope. In the visual for Fly, the viewers are given a quick Black History lesson. Through animation, we follow a young black man who hops into a history book to revisit gruesome and glorious highlights in African and African American history from Slavery to #BlackLivesMatter.
