Black Lives Matter Quincy

Like most of the USA, my city of Quincy, MA is disheartened by the repeated news of black people being killed at the hands of police. Different names – same senseless deaths!

On Tuesday night, some of my friends in Quincy Neighbors Mutual Aid & March Forward Quincy planned what they thought would be a small vigil with maybe 25 attending.

4,000+ of us showed up – nearly all wearing masks

The vigil and march stayed peaceful.

My husband, daughter, & I were amongst the attendees. I was pleased to see many other families there as well.

Here are some photos I took of the vigil and march

Sign saying “Black Lives Matter in Quincy too”
Large crowd beginning to gather
Black Lives Matter in front of the statue of John Adams
Businesses feared violence and boarded up (didn’t happen)
My husband holding our daughter
Taking a knee to honor George Floyd
Koch is the Mayor of Quincy and that’s sadly a direct quote on the sign – specifically said about the vigil/march the sign was being held in!
Silence is compliance
