The Black Lives Matter movement is a international activist movement as was the Birmingham Riots in 1963. BLM campaigns against violence and racism towards black people.

Black Lives Matter started in 2012 after Trayvon Marton's murder. Black Lives Matter goes beyond just extrajudicial killings of black people by police and vigilantes.
