Black Out TuesdayWe Need to Do More
Listen / buy
For #Blackouttuesday we wanted to use our time productively, as a label founded through Black culture. This isn’t just a US problem; racism is also prevalent throughout the UK and we’d like to shine a light on issues faced by the Black community. It’s our responsibility to speak out and we need to continue to do this, as well as reflect on this ourselves and how we can make an impact. We do not have the choice to stay silent.
Please speak to friends and family and be proactive in your stand against racism. We’ve included resources too to help better educate ourselves in how we can be stronger in our allyship.
We stand with the family and friends of those in the UK and US who have lost their lives to racism.
