Best moment proving people still have power: Black Lives Matter and Trump Protesters

Best moment proving people still have power

Early November 2016 was a tense time in Cincinnati. Donald Trump had just been elected president and a Hamilton County jury declared it could not reach a verdict in the case of former University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing’s shooting of unarmed black motorist Samuel DuBose. That tension was especially high outside the Hamilton County courthouse as the verdict — or lack thereof — came down. The hundreds gathered there began to march through the streets of downtown, where they were joined by another large protest against the proposed policies of President Trump. The Black Lives Matter and Trump protesters marching together made a powerful statement — thousands of Cincinnatians marching non-violently for justice and acceptance.
