OPUS United is here to stand up for our rights. For black rights. Earlier this month, OPUS got a group of black celebrities, including politician Van Jones to talk about black rights after George Floyd’s death on May 25, 2020. It’s been 60 days since that event and the world has been talking about black rights more than ever. These events happen all the time, of course, but never has there been such an outrage at an unfair black death than Floyd’s. Epic is using their platform to educate others about the Black Lives Matter program and on Independence Day, a video about black lives was presented in Party Royale by OPUS United. It seems like OPUS United and Epic Games want to collaborate again, as a new presentation will be presented in Party Royale! Let’s take a look!
Where To See It
The event’s gonna play at the top of every hour starting on July 28th, at 7:00 EDT. So you still have a chance to see it before time runs out!
