*Alabama dancer Rachel Lockhart is making waves for her movement inspired by “the movement.”
According to the Alabama News Center, the 19-year-old Alabama School of Fine Arts grad was preparing to shoot a new dance video with friends when the killing of George Floyd ignited renewed calls for social justice. That caused Lockhart and her team of videographers to revamp the choreography and video to create art that fits in with the moment.
“I was just trying to think of ways I could use my platform and also use my art form to spread awareness to everything that’s going on,” Lockhart said. “Although I like sharing posts and liking pictures and donating, I felt like there was a part of me that hadn’t really expressed my side of things.”
Watch Lockhart’s dance contribution, titled “They Still Don’t Care,” set to “They Don’t Care About Us” by Michael Jackson.
