Jacob Blake’s Father & Uncle on the Family’s Long History of Racial Justice Activism

Jacob Blake Sr., whose son was shot by Kenosha police in 2020 and left partially paralyzed, says the household is a component of a bigger motion preventing for victims of police violence and racial injustice.

“We were always pro-Black activists and then after this happened to my son, we’ve become activists for everyone who’s been affected,” he says. The Blake household has an extended historical past of activism going again to the civil rights motion and past. Justin Blake, Jacob Blake’s uncle, says it’s within the household’s DNA. “We cannot sit down, we must make change.”
