#BlackoutTuesday was proposed by music executives Jamila Thomas and Brianna Agyemang, who led in the effort of the music community pausing normal business operations on June 2nd, in “observance of the long-standing racism and inequality that exist from the boardroom to the boulevard.”
Of course, the movement went pretty viral and other brands and influencers vowed to not post any content in solidarity.
If you’d like to participate, simply post a black square with #BLACKOUTTUESDAY. The initiative began circulating on Friday and Saturday, largely thanks to record labels, music companies, streaming platforms, radio personalities, and artists.
Be clear, this was never about being silent. It was to interrupt the work week and refrain from self-promotion to use their presence on various platforms to uplift members of the black community instead.
