BLM PROTESTS IN RETROSPECT
The protests for BLM may have stopped, but the fight for change is an ongoing process. In honour of Black History Month we look back on the protests and invite you to collaborate with us to celebrate the black culture

The Black Live Matter movement inspired many of us to make an effort and educate ourselves further about the history and what we can do to show our much-needed support. The recent protests were an important reminder that change can only happen if we keep fighting.
It is almost impossible to reflect on all the aspects that the black culture has influenced - from art to music, travel and fashion, black culture is beautiful, diverse and impactful. We would like to pay a tribute to the culture, the people who joined the BLM movement and to those we stood up for.
In honour of Black History Month and in the spirit of continuing to educate each other to pass on the knowledge, our team wants to include our readers in what we plan to publish on the matter. If you have any questions or want to know or hear more about anything specific surrounding Black History Month, email or write to us on social media and we will do our best to do your questions justice.
The theme of this year's Black History Month is voting and since African Americans had the right to ballot only after the Civil War, we wanted to share with you some images from the BLM protests to reflect on what has changed since then and how important it is to keep going.
