No Justice, No Peace is a new work, directly inspired by those who marched and protested in response to police brutality, racial injustice and racially motivated violence against African Americans in the wake of the tragic murder of George Floyd. Filmed on Black Lives Matter Plaza in Washington, DC, Step Afrika! dedicates No Justice, No Peace to the work and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the hundreds of thousands of Americans who marched with him throughout the Civil Rights Movement and those who are continuing to march today. There is still so much more work to be done!
