Two weeks ago we were fighting with the virus, suddenly everything shifted to a protest “Black Lives Matter”. It is amazing to see and believe how the united world who was fighting together with the Global pandemic suddenly changing into one of the basics in life that we don’t judge people by its race, color, and religion.
It’s good in fact we are together again but for a different cause. Technology has always been a part in our life and every time has come to rescue us like a “Super Man”.
Here are a few ways in which technology is helping this movement:
1) Black Lives Matter App
Apps are everywhere. Isn’t it? An app published by the Name of Charles Thurman – Black Lives Matter is the new sensation here in the apple store and play sore. This APP will keep you informed, up to date and help you to stay involved in the Black Lives Matter movement and moments.
2) Social Media has its say
On #BlackoutTuesday, during which people posted black squares to their Instagram accounts, a trend that was quickly spread and showed solidarity.
TikTok released plans — detailed in a June 1 blog post – titled “A message to our Black community” — to form a “creator diversity council” aimed at “recognizing and uplifting the voices driving culture, creativity, and important conversations on the platform.”
3) Digital Gatherings
On Sunday, 22,000 people around the globe who couldn’t take to the streets in person gathered on the popular, quarantine-boosted video apps Zoom, Instagram and Facebook Live as part of a series of digital Black Lives Matter protests.
4) Voice Recognition says “Black Lives Batter”
Ask Alexa or Siri or Google if black lives matter and the voice assistants of some of the most powerful companies in the world are quick to answer in the affirmative. “Black lives matter. I believe in racial equality,” says Amazon’s Alexa. “I stand in solidarity with the black community in the fight against systemic racism and injustice.”
5) Black storytelling matters:
Netflix added a Black Lives Matter section to its genre tab on Wednesday, responding to viewers’ interest in titles related to racial injustice, discrimination, and systemic racism.
“When we say ‘Black Lives Matter,’ we also mean ‘Black storytelling matters,’” read a Netflix tweet Wednesday morning. “With an understanding that our commitment to true, systemic change will take time – we’re starting by highlighting powerful and complex narratives about the Black experience.”
We are grateful that we have the technology and we are glad that we serve this Industry.
