Keep checking this page through 11:59 p.m. on Saturday for photos and Tweets from #BLM247. Why? As the people from  Black Lives Matter said in a statement sent to NewsOne:

Black Lives Matter is partnering with The 24 Hour Project to create a #BlackLivesMatter track of the global street photography event this Saturday, March 21st, 2015. The 24 Hour Project seeks to document every-day life in multiple cities during one single day. On March 21st, participants will upload one photo per hour, every hour, starting at 00:00 AM and ending at 23:59 PM in their respective city to their IG and/or Twitter accounts….

This project will use photography to foster community amongst black folks around the globe. It will shift the focus away from the lens of the mainstream media and refocus it on the lenses of the people themselves, who will be armed with cameras, phones, tablets and any other photographic devices they feel inclined to use.  #BLM247 will center blackness in the conversation without misrepresenting or misinterpreting it through the filter of a secondary source.

We are proud to support his project. To join the feed and for more information visit the Black Live Matter Tumblr page.
