This isn’t new—Black political dissent has been met with inordinate surveillance throughout history, from the civil rights movement to Black Lives Matter. MediaJustice is fighting to eliminate the ways law enforcement monitors Black protestors by banning surveillance technology like facial recognition and dismantling labels like the FBI’s Black Identity Extremist designation.  Founding Director and Senior Fellow Malkia Devich-Cyril explains in Yahoo!News.

“The fact is, Black radicalism, including Black separatism, has long been about winning equity, peace and justice for Black people, not about denying it to anyone else—while white supremacist violence has been responsible for the vast majority of domestic terror attacks in 2020 and throughout the last several decades.”
