#BlackLivesMatter was an attempt for us to re-humanize us in a world that so profoundly dehumanizes us, and it was a call to action.

By Laura Flanders   Truthout | Video Interview   March 24, 2015

Laura Flanders: Where to begin? Let’s begin where it began. You and Patrisse Marie Cullors and Opal Tometi cofounded #BlackLivesMatter. Who the heck are you, and how did you come up with [#BlackLivesMatter]?
