Christina Swarns talks about what the mantras “Hands up, don’t shoot," “I can’t breathe," and "Black lives matter” mean for the current and historic civil rights movements.
“Hands up, don’t shoot.”
“I can’t breathe.”
“Black lives matter.”
LDF applauded today’s unanimous vote by the House of Representatives to award the Congressional Gold Medal to the foot soldiers who participated in the Selma to Montgomery marches.
