August Alsina Joins The Black Lives Matter Protest

We know August Alsina for some of music’s great hits like no love which featured Nicki Minaj but now we see him stepping out in a different positive light. A few hours ago, he joined the Black Lives Matter movement at the Baton Rouge protest in Louisiana. He posted pictures of his interaction with Alton Sterling’s aunt and many more while there.

For those of you who are still in the dark, Alton Sterling was a black man who was confronted by two police officers in Baton Rouge before being shot to death.  His death caused a spark of protests against police violence around the world and it’s now under investigation. It’s comforting to see that celebrities are using their influence to speak out on such issues and are coming out to support such causes.
