Beyonce, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, and other celebs have teamed up to make a hugely powerful statement. Mic.com gathered big names to film a video called "23 Ways You Could Be Killed If You Are Black in America," a PSA that sheds light on the rise of violence against black Americans.
Alicia Keys begins the video with "Failing to signal a lane change," a statement that refers to Sandra Bland, who died in police custody after she was pulled over for a minor traffic violation. One by one, celebs like Janelle Monae and Jennifer Hudson list the various innocuous actions that turned deadly for black Americans like Trayvon Martin ("Wearing a hoodie"), Oscar Grant ("Riding a commuter train"), and Eric Garner ("Selling cigarettes outside of a convenience store").
The video was filmed in support of the We Are Here movement, and following the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, it's a particularly powerful statement. Watch the PSA below.
