#BlackLivesMatter has existed as a named movement for several years, though it is the manifestation of many centuries of racist oppression. This movement has a history and will continue for years to come. We believe it is important to not lose sight of the past and have therefore assembled a collection of news articles and videos from recent years to reflect this.
