No Peace, No Justice!

Black Lives Matter March

The state we live in is historically a melting pot of culture and beauty. During February, Black History Month, we observe all facets of African-American culture: history, progress, the victories, the continuation of repression, the love. What better time than Saturday, Feb. 23 for the annual Black Lives Matter March? Stand tall and raise a fist to fight alongside the brothers and sisters of the community. The march starts at 5pm at Century 14 Downtown and goes loud and proud into the night, ending at 10:30pm. Stand against police brutality. Stand against inequality. Stand for peace. Stand for justice. Affirm the existence of black bodies in a world that consistently tells them they aren't human. Stand for humanity.
