Black Out Tuesday

Black Out Tuesday

The music business is holding a Blackout on 2 June 2020. Organisers have asked the industry to not conduct business as usual, and instead spend time reflecting on how to support the black community.

The original statement was posted toward the end of last week and quickly gained momentum over the weekend. By the end of the week, the three music majors Warner Music Group, Sony Music, and Universal Music Group had all pledged support alongside many of their flagship labels.

Many have made a formal call to action, asking those who work in music, entertainment, and show businesses to “pause” on Tuesday because “the show can’t just go on, as our people are being hunted and killed.”

“#Theshowmustbepaused is an initiative created by two black women in music in observance of the long-standing racism and inequality that exist from the boardroom to the boulevard.”
