In a new campaign video called, ‘17 More Ways You Could Be Killed if You Are Black in America,’ the artists appear among some of their peers to showcase the name’s of victims of police brutality alongside the police’s justification for their murder.
In a statment, Keys said:
“I can’t believe that just four and a half years after we released ’23 Ways You Could Be Killed If You Are Black in America,’ we’re here to share ‘17 More Ways’ Black lives have been lost to racism.”

Keys encouraged other artists to get involved and noted that there is still more work that needs to be done.
