Black Out Tuesday is a day to disrupt the workweek of the music industry and to hault operations for the entire day for some or 10 minutes for others. It was created by Atlantic Records’ execs Jamila Thomas and Platoon’s Brianna Agyemang. The two have posted several calls to action and a majority of the other labels are on board as well as Radio Facts. They have also created a list of Anti Racism Resources #theshowmustbepaused

“Tuesday, June 2nd is meant to intentionally disrupt the workweek,” they wrote. “The music industry is a multi-billion dollar industry. An industry that has profited predominantly from Black art. Our mission is to hold the industry at large, including major corporations + their partners who benefit from the efforts, struggles, and successes of Black people accountable. … This is not just a 24-hour initiative. We are and will be in this fight for the long haul. A plan of action will be announced.”
