The Movement for Black Lives Announces Project For Black Voter Literacy (ibw21.org)
The Electoral Project strives for black voter literacy and awareness. In 2014, in Ferguson, Missouri, Kayla Reed knew to expect tear gas — officers had used chemical agents on protestors in the past. As she stood with protestors facing a line of officers, tensions rose. Protestors openly declared that black lives matter, and officers’ faces grew red. Just as Kayla began to wonder about her safety, a large pickup truck rounded the corner with a gospel choir standing in its bed on a stage. Music surrounded them, moving the protesters with spiritual songs and asking the officers to stand down. The singers handed out water and kind words, and the tension surrendered. There was beauty in this safety, but still work to be done.
