Beyoncé, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Chris Rock and More List '23 Ways You Could Be Killed If You Are Black in America'

In the days since last week's horrific violence, we've seen many celebrities speak out to express anger, solidarity, or prayers for peace.

Now, a who's-who of A-listers have come together for a video in partnership with Mic.com, titled "23 Ways You Could Be Killed If You Are Black in America." In it, Beyoncé, Pink, Chris Rock, Janelle Monae, Rihanna, and other stars solemnly read off the commonplace activities in which black victims of police violence were partaking when they were shot -- followed by a photo of the victim and their name. Oakland's own Oscar Grant III, in case you've forgotten, was simply "taking a commuter train." The sheer volume of names and smiling faces, paired with activities like "laughing," is nothing short of chilling by the video's end.

The list ends with a plea from Keys to make your voice heard to President Obama and Congress by clicking over to the website of Keys' nonprofit, weareheremovement.com.
