The summer has been filled with racial tension following the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, two Black men who were shot and killed by police officers last week.

Celebrities like Jay Z, Drake, and more have already taken to social media to speak out on the injustice, and now 25 more stars are lending their voices to the cause.

On the third anniversary of both the acquittal of George Zimmerman and the birth of the Black Lives Matter movement, Mic published a video on Facebook of celebrities like Beyoncé, Rihanna, Chris Rock, Pharrell Williams, P!nk, and others naming reasons why Black people have been killed by police officers.

 

Alicia Keys organized the dozens of high-profile celebrities to make a powerful statement about Black lives and to speak out against police brutality in the video entitled, “23 Everyday Actions Punishable by Death if You’re Black in America.”

Watch the touching video above.
