From the 3rd Annual Shorty Social Good Awards

Take a Knee

Entered in Social Justice, Video

About this entry

To counter the President's narrative, that taking a knee was un-American, we wanted to create a film to remind the public of the truth behind this powerful sign of respect and peaceful protest.

Why does this entry deserve to win?

We took infamous and tragic police violence videos and re-imagined them with an athlete kneeling in place of the victim.

Results

This film was shared socially (with no media support) during the apex of the #TakeAKnee movement and press attention. The film was shared by a number of influencers and activists including Jesse Williams, Niecy Nash, D.L. Hughley, Jasmine Sanders, Tracee Ellis Ross, Tamia, and Regina Hall, garnering millions of views and counting.
