Blackout Tuesday is a day promoted by activists to bring attention to changes in the US policy and honor George Floyd, who died at the hands of a police officer. This movement was initially started by Jamila Thomas and Brianna Agyemang as a social media initiative for members of the music industry. The movement spread rapidly on various platforms and manifests itself by people posting black images on social media to express solidarity with the black community.
The Blackout Tuesday movement helps people express solidarity and support for police brutality victims, but adding #BlackLivesMatter hashtag to posts may harm the movements because they hide vital information for activists.
