Second 'Black Lives Matter' Rally Fizzles
SAN ANGELO, TX -- The Black Lives Matter group had another non-violent protest today, this time at Martin Luther King Park.
Today's rally was less hostile than the first protest as the group met at the tables of the park to discuss current affairs in the African American community.
Although this was the second rally held by the group only a portion of those from the first rally attended the second. At the start of the rally, we counted less than 30 cars in the nearby parking locations.
A prayer vigil held on Tuesday brought city leaders and pastors from throughout the city, along with law enforcement officials who spoke about unity and prayed for the community. At the gathering on Thursday, only citizens and officers with the San Angelo police were seen.
Another rally put together by San Angelo's NAACP will be Saturday at 3:45 p.m. This will be an authentic civil rights march led by leaders of San Angelo's NAACP. Called the "#WeAreDoneDying Community Peace Rally," it is planned to take place in front of the Ministerial Alliance Campus at 1100 Martin Luther King Dr.
