The Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement serves as a reminder to the continuous strides by black people in the UK and beyond to be heard, recognised, and treated with equality, respect, and decency in all fabrics of society. Britain’s colonial past continues to dominate an imperial hegemonic system where people from her colonies are continuous subjects of abuse, racial discrimination, stereotypes, and deprivation. The unprecedented activities of BLM in Britain have registered a significant shift in both the narratives of the past and current realities of the general population. All types of people from across all sectors of society joined in amplifying the voice of the vulnerable, marginalised, used, and abused part of our society, the Black People. The BLM protests in 2020 signalled a beacon of hope…hope as we have been living in for centuries now.
