About Civil Right Activist Shaun King Biography

An American writer, civil rights activist, as well as the co-founder of Real Justice PAC, is named for Shaun King. He is famous for his use of social media to promote social justice causes which include the Black Lives Matter movement. He has also launched a site "The North Star" named after the 19th-century anti-slavery newspaper by Frederick Douglass which publishes articles, podcast episodes, and videos. He also hosts two podcasts, "The Breakdown with Shaun King" and "Married to the Movement" on the site. He is currently a writer-in-residence at Harvard Law School’s Fair Punishment Project and contributes to The Intercept and The Appeal. Previously, he contributed to the New York Daily News, Daily Kos, the Tom Joyner Morning Show, and The Young Turks. As of July 2020, he has over 2.4 million followers on Facebook, 3.6 million followers on his Instagram, and 1.1 million followers on his Twitter. Shaun King is facing backlash on Twitter after appearing to try to pass off a historian's work as his own. On July 4, King shared a version of John Trumbull’s "Declaration of Independence" painting that had red dots over the faces of slaveowners who were present for the momentous event. "Every man with a red dot on their face who signed the Declaration of Independence OWNED and enslaved Africans," he wrote. But the problem with King’s tweet lies in the first half. "I'm a historian by training. My undergraduate and graduate degrees are in history. Let me teach you something," he wrote, prior to launching into the explanation. Though King did not explicitly claim to have created the image that followed, he set expectations up in a way that many felt insinuated it was his own creation, or at the very least, he hoped people would assume as much.
