The concept of The Blk Box came about after becoming frustrated by the endless amount of names that have become hashtags through the power of social media due to police brutality and similar situations:
Michael Brown Jr.
Sandra Bland… The list goes on.
After getting tired of tweeting #BlackLivesMatter and crying over viral videos detailing the moments leading up to black men and women being gunned down by police with the result of no justice, creator of The Blk Box Monique Dee decided to use her talent, social media platforms and websites as a way to help build up her people and take much needed action. After going into communities, encouraging youth, and playing a leading role in Colin Kaepernick and Nessa’s Know Your Rights Camp for young adults, Monique has become determined on being a part of the solution. “We can hashtag names, shame internet trolls and post angry messages all day,” Monique says. “But until we begin to uplift the black community and take back the power of the black dollar, all ‘black lives matter’ posts are null and void.”
BE THE CHANGE.
