Who We Are & What We Do
Black Lives Matter South Carolina was founded by Lawrence Nathaniel in 2020, in response to the killing of George Floyd. Black Lives Matter South Carolina (BLM-SC), Inc is a statewide organization in South Carolina, whose mission is to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes.
We provide the facts behind the fallacy of equality within our nation in order to amplify the voices of Black Americans across America.
We affirm the lives of those who have been marginalized within Black Liberation movements, including but not limited to: queer, trans, and undocumented members of the black community.
We believe in building a future that brings all of us to the forefront, and we support all up-and-coming leaders within the movement.
