I believe that BLM is a spiritual movement indeed. The linked JSTOR article makes a strong case for this idea. The article states in its conclusion, "Today, Black Lives Matter remains a potent force for racial justice. Yet media coverage of the movement frequently continues to paint it in simplistic terms that ignore the way its vision of justice intertwines with healing and spirituality." I agree with this statement fully. I know that I have to be spiritually grounded in this work as it permeates all aspects of life as a Black Man.
