Black Lives Matter
Against Afrophobia and Racism everywhere.
Carnival in a Box celebrates the arts, culture and heritage of Caribbean and Black communities across the U.K with our parades, galas and activities. As a Black led organisation, Brick by Brick Communities CIC is all too aware of the damaging effect that Afrophobia and racism has on individuals, families and our society.
Here you can watch some of the creative responses in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Celebrated Trinidadian Calypsonian D’Alberto’s performs ‘I Can’t Breathe’, and Quiet Storm’s Create Not Hate excellent videos challenge perceptions and stereotypes around race.
Black Lives Matter. That doesn’t mean that only Black lives matter. But we need everyone’s help to end the murder and oppression of Black people, and correct the distortions and mis-truths about Black history and culture.
We believe that Black Lives Matter. We hope you do too.
