More than 1,000 activists and allies came together to support Black communities and protest police brutality.
Salon by the Park hosted “BLM (Black Lives Matter) Peaceful Protest” from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, June 7 at Olde City Park.
The event featured spoken-word poets, music, prayer and Black residents telling stories. Organizers also had a “say their names” portion in which leaders said the names of Black victims of police brutality, and protestors repeated their names back.
