Fergie took to social media on Monday to share how she is instilling values promoting equality into her young son, Axl. The singer posted a video showing her and Axl, 6, taking part in a Black Lives Matter protest in Los Angeles.
The montage video featured clips of the songstress marching down the street holding a sign reading, “Racism must stop. #blacklivesmatter.”
Axl, whom the singer shares with ex-husband Josh Duhamel, and other children were also shown holding signs and taking part in the protest.
“It starts at home ♥️♥️ #BLM,” the former Black Eyed Peas singer captioned the video, which was sound-tracked by Stevie Wonder’s “Love’s in Need of Love Today.”
“To all of the protestors who have stepped outside their homes during a global pandemic, come together with their communities, and stood up for change as the frontline against racial injustice, my unconditional allegiance is with all of you and with the entire #BlackLivesMatter movement,” she wrote. “Let’s continue pushing forward so that the children of this nation don’t have to live in fear. It’s a new time. It’s a new season. Let’s keep moving ahead for policy change!!”
She also shared a clip showing large crowds turning up for a protest on Hollywood Boulevard earlier in June, writing, “Yes LA!!! #BLMLA #BLDPWR #BlackLivesMatter.”
