BLM: Founders Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, Opal Tometi

An interview with the founders of Black Lives Matter | Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, Opal Tometi

October 2016 TED

Born out of a social media post, the Black Lives Matter movement has sparked discussion about race and inequality across the world. In this spirited conversation with Mia Birdsong, the movement's three founders share what they've learned about leadership and what provides them with hope and inspiration in the face of painful realities. Their advice on how to participate in ensuring freedom for everybody: join something, start something and "sharpen each other, so that we all can rise."
