Now, more than ever, it’s important that white and non-oppressed persons everywhere stand up for Black lives as active allies. Too long we have lived with injustice, rationalizing our behavior and viewpoints with the support of history.
In order to rid ourselves of racism, of hate, of oppression,
we need to work with earnestness
to move our society toward a future—a free future.
In this issue of Rare Magazine, we have brought together resources and reflections on what freedom means to America and the world abroad. We feature allies such as Lisa of Throckmorton Jones whose #BLM masks and apparel empower protestors and supporters. We offer an interview with Irish artist Damien Priestly who reveals the turmoil of growing up
in the middle of violence and chaos.
We speak with essential workers on how consumers
can help assuage fears of those who have to work.
There’s even a curated playlist filled with Black artists
to get you into the revolutionary spirit of freedom.
