Black Hollywood showed up in numbers this weekend to join in on the #OccupyCityHall movement in an effort to support all initiatives that invoke change.
The ongoing #OccupyCityHall movement was sparked as a result of the Los Angeles Police Commission’s decision on Tuesday, July 12, that the fatal shooting of Redel Jones last year was justified and “in-policy.” Jones, an African-American woman who matched the description of a robbery suspect, was shot in an alleyway in South Los Angeles after police say she moved towards an officer while holding a knife.
Those who were in attendance joining the movement at Los Angeles City Hall yesterday, Sunday, July 17, were Megan Good, DeVon Franklin, Marlon Wayans,Terrence J, Omar Epps, Keisha Epps, Tina Knowles-Lawson, Boris Kodjoe, Nicole Ari Parker, Kimberly Elise, Chris Spencer, Eva Marcille, Dondre Whitfield, Lance Gross, Affion Crockett, Logan Browning, Kendrick Sampson and Datari Turner.
Many of those taking part were also a part of a secret meeting spearheaded by rapper The Game last week to bring about solutions to the ongoing epidemic of police violence against Blacks.
