The world is mourning the loss of a great artist. On top of celebrating Prince’s musical and artistic contributions, his death has brought attention to his quiet political activism. Without courting the spotlight and inevitable praise he would have received, Prince provided resources to everyone from Black Lives Matter to people in need of solar panels in Oakland.

This video features his tribute to Freddie Gray, with moving images of people mobilizing for justice for Gray and Black Lives Matter.
