Hundreds of people from the greater San Francisco Bay Area gathered today to commemorate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and to declare that Black lives matter. Women, men, and children marched, chanted, sang from the CalTrain station on 4th and Townsend to Yerba Buena Gardens in downtown San Francisco. Fifty years after marches and protests in Selma, Alabama and the Voters Right’s Act in 1965, people united in solidarity to exercise their first amendment right to protest against the injustices that still exist in America.
Black lives matter, in San Francisco, too.
