What Does 'Black Lives Matter' Really Mean?

Black Lives Matter co-founder, Janaya Khan, defines the movement

It's not about positioning black people as being better or more important than other races. It's about looking at the quality of black life and challenging the idea that black people are not as valuable as other human beings. It's about examining the issues of mass incarceration, police brutality, and poverty, that disproportionately affect black people. It's a tool for transformation.
