The third night of the Democratic National Convention included another all-star lineup, with speeches from 2016 nominee Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama, and Vice Presidential nominee, Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA).

Another speech was delivered by 2020 Presidential candidate and Democratic Senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren.

Giving her address from an early childhood center in her home state, Warren discussed the importance of childcare access for working parents, especially for single parents.

But another detail from the five minute speech is sticking out from the background.

On the shelf behind the Senator, "BLM" is spelled out in letter blocks.

BLM stands for Black Lives Matter—the rallying cry of those who took the nation by storm in the 2010s, resolute to combat the racism enshrined by current United States systems and laws. BLM protests skyrocketed nationwide in recent months in response to the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Elijah McClain, and countless other Black Americans at the hands of police.

It didn't take long for people to notice the message.

Throughout her 2020 presidential campaign, Warren made racial justice a focus of her platform.

The Root ranked her racial justice plan, A Working Agenda for Black America, as the best of all 2020 presidential candidate, saying "perhaps no candidate in history ever had a more detailed, comprehensive plan that Elizabeth Warren's."

The Center for Urban and Racial Equity also ranked Warren's plan for racial justice as the most comprehensive.

In her speech, Warren emphasized how the current pandemic is disproportionately affecting families of color.

"Today, America has the most [virus] deaths in the world and an economic collapse, and both crises are falling hardest on Black and Brown families. Millions out of work. Millions more trapped in cycles of poverty. Millions on the brink of losing their homes."

People commended the content of the speech as well.
