The Question: Which phrase that became a mass social movement was coined by activist Alicia Garza in 2013?
A Black Lives Matter
B Occupy Wall Street
C Me Too
In a widely shared Facebook post that concluded with ‘our lives matter,’ Garza turned her dismay with the results of the Trayvon Martin case into a life-affirming message. Fellow activist Patrisse Cullors tweeted #BlackLivesMatter shortly after, and the hashtag took off. In following years, controversial police killings around the nation would turn the phrase into a mass movement, with the 2020 George Floyd protests creating immense support for the cause.
The correct answer is Black Lives Matter.
