Lately I’ve been feeling like I’m living in a high-action sci-fi thriller. We are in the middle of a global pandemic. Two viruses are causing death and destruction—one is COVID-19 and the other is white supremacy. Because of these two, life looks very different now. I wake up and fall asleep to the sound of police helicopters overhead.
After months of hand-wringing and re-imagining what mobilization will look like in times of social distancing, I’ve found myself suddenly compelled to venture outside, mask, gloves, and hand sanitizer in tow, to join the tens of thousands of people in the streets proclaiming Black Lives Matter!
