Yesterday, I took the time to research, read & listen to some of the pain & injustices black men, women & children face on a daily basis simply because of the colour of their skin. This has to stop, full stop. I have, & will continue to write to my local MP regarding these injustices at home & abroad & have just donated to the Black Lives Matter movement & The Cherry Groce Foundation. Dorothy’s story in particular moved me to my core & the courage, kindness, strength & dignity she possesed for the love of her children was an inspiration. “On the 28th September 1985, witnessed by her children, Cherry Groce was shot in her home by the Metropolitan Police. The shooting of an innocent mother sparked the Brixton uprising, in which a community rose up in protest to the ongoing, systemic injustice faced by Britain’s black community. Having been paralysed by the shooting, Cherry passed away as a direct result of her injuries in 2011.” The police officer that shot her was cleared of all charges. I vow to keep learning, speaking up & educating myself for the rest of my life đź–¤ #blacklivesmatter #dorothygroce #cherrygrocefoundation #whiteprivilege #enoughisenough
