Georgetown, SC — one small town in the American South
6 June, 2020
The protest organizers, leading hundreds, are a group of high school students.
“The color of our skin is not a weapon.”
The little girl’s shirt: “I am my ancestors’ wildest dream.”
“Equality not brutality”
“Turn our pain into purpose.Vote, vote, vote.”
“Say these names”
Trayvon Martin Tamir Rice Eric Garner George Floyd Philando Castile Breonna Taylor
and on and on ...
“No justice, no peace. No racist police.”
“I can’t breathe.”
“We need love not hate.”
“ ‘Breathing - a human right.”
We truly hope that the sad and awful events of 2020 are at last a catalyst for real change in our country, marking the end of abuse of authority at every level
and the beginning of social justice for all. Black lives matter to us and we were proud to stand with our neighbors in Georgetown this weekend.
