Ryan Coogler, 29, filmmaker, Blackout for Human Rights Founder: “I come from a community that is not much different from Flint, Michigan. When you are from those kinds of places and you start making more money, living in different neighborhoods and traveling all the time, you get alienated from those around you, just naturally. But in this day and age, because of technology and social media, it’s easier to connect with folks [who] help keep you grounded. [Blackout for Human Rights], the network responsible for #JUSTICEFORFLINT, is just a bunch of people dealing with similar circumstances. Even though we are spread out, we are able to send each other a text message or e-mail or an article or video and say, “How do you feel about this? What can we do about this?” The motivation behind #JUSTICEFORFLINT was love for my people.
