The Speech Of A Generation
Yaaas! News Special Report.
Led by Peter Eric Lang.
The breathtaking images that have been captured of a growing rally in the heart of Central London for Black Lives Matter that is history in the making.
John Boyega was trending on Twitter alongside the first black President of the United States, Barack Obama. This in its own right just shows how important what happened in Hyde Park was on the 3rd of June 2020. More than half a million people were Tweeting about Boyega's speech and that number continuously grew and grew as the day progressed and the momentum picked up outside of the core protest.
John Boyega led the protests with phenomenal levels of emotions that can be felt on every level and with every fibre of your being. The distress and heartache that is so powerful in his voice, body language and facial expressions are palpable.
People have pointed out they can feel 'the pain in his voice' which is so evident it cannot be ignored. This is one of the most powerful turning points in history and the grief and pain that Boyega shows cannot be feigned. This is real, harrowing pain he has lived through. He sadly knows all this distress from first-hand experience and we need people like John Boyega with the global superstar presence to lead us forward and break through the glass box that black people are continually being forced into.
