From Inglewood, California to Miami, Florida, #BlackLivesMatter protests swept the nation in recent days. With the consecutive police murders of #DelwranSmall, #AltonSterling, #PhilandoCastile and #AlvaBraziel many have been left feeling helpless and fearful. These feelings have been channeled into action that has taken form as protests and demonstrations in major cities across the country
