Everything You Need to Know About ‘Blackout Tuesday’

Today is Blackout Tuesday, a day meant to show solidarity with the black community for social and political change after the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Many people including celebrities and organizations are participating by posting a picture of solid black. And some are also including the hashtag "Black Lives Matter." But for activists and influencers, including that hashtag is counterproductive. Flooding the hashtag with images of solid black blocks vital information about protests.
