About 80 people gathered in Market Square in Portsmouth Friday night to show solidarity with African American victims of police brutality.
A few people of color stood among a largely white crowd. Some stood quietly, others chanted "We Shall Overcome."
PaMela Ramsay held a sign reading “Black Lives Matter.” She’s a third generation Portsmouth Native, and African American. "It's always been very white here," she said, "and it's extremely encouraging, extremely emotional, and I'm just so happy to see all these people who would support people of color."
