"We affirm the lives of Black queer and trans folks, disabled folks, undocumented folks, folks with records, women, and all Black lives along the gender spectrum.
We are working for a world where Black lives are no longer systematically targeted for demise."
Black Lives Matter is a decentralized movement advocating for non-violent civil disobedience in protest against incidents of police brutality and all racially motivated violence against African-American people.

"WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE"
Gaye will share some things that have actually happened, some things that are in the works, and some things that should be happening along with some brainstorming techniques.
Gaye is a social activist and has fought for justice her entire life. In her songwriting she tries to provide a voice for those who have been marginalized by society. Yet, many of her songs are known for their biting humor. She does all of that and more on her weekly live program, “THE FRONT PORCH: Half Lit & Talkin’ . . . Schmack” archived on Facebook. By maintaining the blues tradition, she sees herself as a contemporary griot – keeping her history alive, delivering messages of empowerment, ministering to the heartbroken, and finding joy in the mundane. Gaye was born and raised in Fredericksburg, Virginia where she sat-in, picketed and protested its racism. She graduated as valedictorian of the then-segregated Walker-Grant High School, went to Boston University to finish with a major in biology and a minor in chemistry. Prior to becoming a teacher, she worked as a technical writer, a biochemical researcher at Rockefeller University, and a bacteriologist at Harlem Hospital. She has a Master’s degree in Educational Media
What started as a project just at the Ohio Theatre and Greater Columbus Arts Council office quickly became a city-wide movement supported by businesses, artists and individuals who wanted to express their support for the protests and hope for the future.
