    Alicia Garza on Leading the Black Lives Matter Movement

    In 2013, after George Zimmerman was acquitted in the murder of Trayvon Martin, Alicia Garza went on Facebook and wrote a love letter to black people. That letter helped spark the #BlackLivesMatter movement, which has since become one of the defining social movements for a generation.

    It takes a great leader to make the tough decisions that determine success or failure, growth or decline and, in some cases, life or death. From negotiation to collaboration, there’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes when it comes to making critical choices, whether it’s running a department of the U.S. government or inspiring an entire nation to value human rights.
