Raianna Brown

It’s important to put yourself on the line, even if you’re nervous, and make a stand for something you believe in.

Meet Raianna Brown, the courageous Georgia Tech dancer in the photo from 2016, which resurfaced and went viral this past weekend during the NFL controversy about players taking a knee during the national anthem in support of social and racial justice issues. It's important that we remember the young women who have long been part of this protest movement, initially started by Colin Kaepernick two seasons ago.  Raianna proves that each of us has the power to make a powerful public statement in support of our beliefs. Again this year, her photo has been met with both negative and positive responses, but that won't stop this #ChangeMaker! Way to go, Raianna. We #TakeAKnee with you.
