cities around the country held marches and rallies yesterday to protest the murders of unarmed black men and women. sparked by michael brown’s killing by a police officer in ferguson, missouri, news reports are saying 1,000 people marched through dc demanding justice.
the footage below is from dc’s protest that was lead by the local chapter of black youth project 100.
social media activism certainly plays a role in raising people’s consciousness (i’m thankful for this outlet while i’m visiting my small hometown); however, i encourage people to do something more. the world is watching, and it’s time to speak truth to power.
check my blog soon for ways to get involved in the movement to end police brutality and violence against black communities.
