Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, And More Stand Up For Black Lives In Powerful New Video

Chance the Rapper, Bono, Pink, and A$AP Rocky also feature

It’s no secret that it’s been a volatile time in the U.S., as black Americans continue to be killed by police with alarming frequency. Celebrities have subsequently become more outspoken about police brutality and the Black Lives Matter movement, and now Mic has recruited some of those voices for a powerful video called “23 Ways You Can Be Killed If You Are Black In America.”

Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Chance the Rapper, Bono, Pink, A$AP Rocky, Lenny Kravitz, and Pharrell are among the litany of celebrities featured in the video. Each one identifies a victim of police violence and describes the everyday actions that led to their death because of racial bias. Beyoncé, for example, points out “riding in your girlfriend’s car with a child in the back,” citing the recent death of Philando Castile. Other actions include everything from “failing to signal a lane change” to simply “making eye contact.”

It’s a hard watch, but it’s also a necessary watch. See it here:

Keys -- who coordinated the video, using information from a recent Mic article -- caps it off with a call to action: “Go to weareheremovement.com to tell President Obama and Congress that the time for change is now. We demand radical transformation to heal the long history of systematic racism so that all Americans have the equal right to live and to pursue happiness.”
