Coverage of the Black Lives Matter protests have severely declined these past few weeks even though the momentum of the protests still continues. Read about performative activism's role in that decline.
I offer some historical context that can be used to explain the protests to family and friends and as a way to start dismantling anti-blackness within non-black communities through education. The history is specifically for Dallas, Texas.
Performative Activism has become rampant on social media in response to recent events. In this, I go over statistics, books and documentaries to be better informed and what you can do to help.
