In Conversation w/ Black Lives Matter Rally Key Speaker Safiya Kamaria Kinshasa

EDUCATING the public about their history was a key message from Thursday evening's Black Lives Matter rally in Trowbridge Town Park as hundreds gathered following the death in America of George Floyd a fortnight ago.


People from all ethnic backgrounds took part in the rally as those who took the microphone told the crowd why they had to speak out.
