Beyoncé, Rihanna and more speak up on black lives in America

Other musicians including Alicia Keys, A$AP Rocky and Chance the Rapper mourn black victims in a video titled ‘23 ways you could be killed if you are black in America’

Beyoncé, Rihanna, Chance the Rapper, Alicia Keys and other celebrities from inside and outside of the music world have come together for a video series denouncing police brutality in America.

Speaking in a powerful video produced by Mic for the We Are Here movement, an organisation established by Alicia Keys to campaign for social justice issues, the musicians detail the ways that “you could be killed if you are black in America”, as The FADER report.

The videos – titled 23 Voices – see each of the artists show the name of a black person that has been killed in America, explain what they were doing when they were killed, and display a photo of the victim.

Other artists involved in the project include Pharrell, A$AP Rocky, and Zoe Kravitz.

The moving videos can be seen individually on Twitter, and more information on the We Are Here movement can be found on their website. Otherwise, watch the full video above.
