  1. Thank you for this. When I left New York City in 2019, after 5 years of weekly protests trying and failing to get justice for Eric Garner (who was murdered one block from my house), I felt like I had failed him. Then, to see millions of young people marching around the world for George Floyd and finding justice, I felt all the earlier years work was worth it. Sometimes, the generation that fails, inspires the generation that wins. And the work continues.

  2. We are living in a modern age, and I don't know why some people care about gender, race, and religion. All of us are human being and what we should care is morality matters not color, gender, etc.

  3. Yes people should fight to become slaves and support super rich enlighten totalitarian Marxist masters to protect them . BLM is fixing civil right movement activists mistake. They did believe in equality and freedom. Having communist masters, protectors who are introducing equity is better than respect and freedom in democratic society.

  4. As a while man who is a advocate for Black Lives, I want to point out how important it is to get the facts right. Some of your info is just not correct. Simple research of court documents would have cleared up your facts. When you get some of this wrong, your detractors will dismiss everything else you are saying that is entirely accurate. So, as an ally, I would just encourage you to do better. Get the facts right.

  5. As a black person living in South Africa I found it hard to complete this entire video, it’s reminiscent of the stories my elders told me about Apartheid. All these things are actually happening in the so-called “land of the free and home of the brave.”

  6. I can't thank you enough for episode #51 BLM. I'll continue to learn about black history since my public school education didn't give me an accurate account of US history. My strong emotions on this subject will galvanize my commitment to being a unifying force in the community and voting for leaders that will strengthen the recent support for all who are marginalized.

  7. When I heard this was the last episode of CC black history, my heart sank a little. It’s been a mind expanding, thought provoking journey to learn from you Clint. I’ve read numerous books thanks to your recommendation on this series that has helped me better understand who I am and where I come from. Our history is truly unique and powerful. I can’t thank you and the Crash Course team enough for putting together such an important and amazing project together.

  8. Imma say this honestly I don’t support BLM only because it was a hugggge scam, yes I love everything about black people but the whole blm program was to put money in other peoples pockets and it supported virtually nothing. Very sad that they were being used for money smh

  9. Thank you for another excellent, relevant lesson! My gratitude to Professor Smith and Crash Course for this whole Black American History series! It is such an amazing series! I plan to share a few videos with my US History and English classes. Thank you again! Excellent work! Black and Brown Lives Matter!

  10. I was introduced to this series by my African American Studies teacher and I loved it so much. Thank you so much for all of the work and for educating us more on Black American history. I will never forget what I learned.

  11. This series has opened my eyes and heart to so many nuances of Black life, and to the history of so many notorious Black people that make me even more proud of this tried-by-fire skin of mine.

    Thank you Dr. Clint Smith! I can't wait to read my copy of "How the Word is Passed" and glean even more from your incredible mind and careful articulation of our history.
