According to ABC News, Alicia Keys held a protest in New York City to speak about the plight of the 200 plus Nigerians girls kidnapped by Boko Haram militants earlier this year in April. She was also joined by her producer husband, Swizz Beatz.
Keys recently recorded and released a song named, “We Are Here,” which fights for social justice. It’s also the name of the movement she started to bring awareness to this campaign.
Tuesday marked six months since the girls were taken and they still haven’t been returned. Keys started the protest with 30 others at the consulate general of Nigeria, holding signs that read “We Are Here” and “Safe Schools Now!”
“Today is my son’s birthday and it is also making me stand in solidarity with all the mothers of the Chibok girls who have been abducted for six months and are still missing. And it is just outrageous that that’s going on,” says Alicia Keys.
