keGri and The BLM Movement
Updated: Jul 2, 2020
For eight minutes and forty-six seconds, George Floyd laid on his stomach with a police officer on his neck. After his death, there was an outcry for justice like this country hadn't seen in decades. The Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement took an entirely new level of activation and activism, and the consciousness of the masses was shifted to this issue and its resolve as protests spread across the entire country almost instantly, and within days was on almost every continent in the world.
African Americans are experiencing blatant racism, often dealing with it in the shadows, and hiding the pain from even their closest friends and family. Listen to this heart-wrenching story about what actor, model, and keGri ambassador Davy King experienced after having come to America from the Netherlands to attend a small, liberal arts college in Waverly, Iowa.
People who know Davy very closely didn't even know about his experience until they saw that video. What are your friends, family, co-workers, and other associates dealing with behind closed doors?
