Over the weekend I experienced and participated in what can only be described as a HISTORICAL event! It was phenomenal, organised, and evoked many emotions within all who participated - supporters and organisers alike. The Instagram Live marathon commenced 20/06/2020 and concluded 22/06/2020 on Windrush Day.
The concept was simple but effective.
24 DJs for 24 hours straight, playing one hour Instagram Live sets one after another, after another, to raise funds under the #RespectBlackLives. What started as one thing became something so much greater, with vast amounts of scope for growth and the ability to effect change. The @24_4_24 movement created a community and a sense of belonging.
