The Black Lives Matter of Michigan came to East Lansing Sunday to promote what they call black love, black joy and black political power.

The event was called “Dream Big: Step into Power” and was located at the Scene Metrospace which is an art exhibit here in East Lansing.

People of all colors gathered and explored questions like what black love means to them as well as how they can gain a voice in the government.

“Today is the beginning of a state-wide people’s assembly process, which is really about residence coming together to find ways to prioritize our issues and work with governments so that it works better for us,” Angela Waters Austin, co-founder of Black Lives Matter of Michigan, said.
