Country Music Legend, Dolly Parton Backs Black Lives Matter Movement

Country music legend, Dolly Parton has thrown her weight behind the ‘Black Lives matter’ movement.

The ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement has been on the forefront of major political, Social and cultural discussions in the US and Europe recently after the police killing of black man George Floyd in May.

Ever since the killing of Floyd at the hands of police, there have been street protests, online campaigns, and even new laws were created to highlight and mitigate police brutality towards black people.

Now, Parton, 74, who made her album debut in 1967 with Hello, I’m Dolly, has come out to state her support for the movement.

“I understand people having to make themselves known and felt and seen,” she said in an interview with Billboard Magazine.

“And of course Black lives matter. Do we think our little White a**es are the only ones that matter? No!”
