Solidarity With Charlotte, Tulsa

An estimated 1,000 Atlantans led by the Georgia NAACP, Black Lives Matter, #stopkillingus and allied organizations quickly organized Sept. 23 to demonstrate downtown in solidarity with the protests against police killings of Keith Scott in Charlotte, NC and Terence Crutcher in Tulsa, OK. (Crowd estimate from Atlanta Progressive News.) They marched from the Center for Civil and Human Rights to the King Center and from there to the Atlanta Police Department and jail, where to the approving flicker of lights from the cell windows they assembled peacefully until midnight for a “Midnight in America” rally. Protests continue. Above, center with DSA shirt and sign: Daniel Hanley; for right with sign, Megan Harrison.  Photo: Steve Eberhardt
