The Brooklyn Nets’ 2017-18 season home opener at the Barclay’s Center kicked off in protest on Friday night, October 20, when Roc Nation borough native Justine Skye completed her rendition of the National Anthem by taking a knee.
Justine Skye takes a knee while singing national anthem before Nets home game at Barclays Center! Check out why she made this decision below. / “Got a bit shaky at the end.. was pretty uneasy about singing the anthem and probably won’t ever be invited to sing it again but I had to take a knee for the opening game in my city and let my voice be heard. We will not be silenced ✊? #blacklivesmatter – @justineskye / This is why Justine ROCKS! / #blackgirlsrock #blackgirlmagic
