#BlackOut was one of the top trending hashtags in the United States on March 5th 2016, also known as Black Out Day. In the midst of underwhelming justice, the black community decided to put action into their own hands. The #Blackout movement was created to bring awareness to the beauty of other races as well as police brutality and the lack of media representation for black people. #BlackOut has become a historic hashtag, highlighting the strength and unity the black community shares as well as bringing light to social issues. This exhibition is compiled of selfies, pictures and videos of black people. It puts the spotlight on #BlackOut once again and re­opens the door to awareness.
