Why Activists Say to Wear Black on the Fourth of July
No doubt, many Americans will wear red, white, and blue on Independence Day. But others plan on wearing black on the 4th of July to show their frustration with the state of the union — and their commitment to a freer, more equitable America.
Two years ago, activists encouraged their followers to wear black to support Black, Brown, and Indigenous populations. This year, some people are donning black clothes on this Monday, July 4, to protest the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
