Black Twitter is the most powerful collection of brilliant Black (and white) minds in America that rose to mainstream relevance after fed-up tweeter @MoreAndAgain (Genie Lauren) created a Change.org petition to shut down “Juror B37’s” book deal. And DID.
So, for those looking for inspiration after the soul-burning Zimmerman verdict, this amazing story of tireless Twitter activism should give you hope. Take a look.

If ONE person can inspire social change, imagine what a united Black community can achieve. You can follow her journey here: @MoreAndAgain.
