Projects, essays and final exams did not stop close to 300 VCU students and other Richmond residents from shutting down Broad Street Wednesday night to protest against police brutality.
The unified cries of native residents echoed alongside the voices of VCU, Virginia Union University and Virginia State University students mere hours after a single announcement ignited demonstrations in over 150 cities and set ablaze a whirlwind of polarizing conversations regarding race relations in America.
“Police, police. KKK. How many kids did you kill today.”
The Richmond community on Tuesday afternoon continued their stance of solidarity with Michael Brown, an 18-year old African American who was fatally shot by a white cop.
