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.

Mission

Our mission is to facilitate conversation surrounding the injustices, fears, and disproportions that Black Americans and other POC experience daily. We won’t stop until we see not only the fundamental transformation of South Carolina, but the reshaping of America as a whole. 

Vision

Black Lives Matter is more than skin deep. In affirming that Black Lives Matter, we are taking a stand for each and every American who has been disenfranchised due to their heritage. The love and desire we have for justice extends beyond ourselves, and it will act as the catalyst for a truly united American nation. 

Values

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.
