Black Lives Matter Protest Returns To Manchester

Jul 15, 2016

A second Black Lives Matter protest is taking place in downtown Manchester Saturday night. 

Plymouth State University student and Manchester native Tyrell Whitted is organizing the event. He says he hopes Saturday “will be a positive experience, peaceful, everybody’s gonna raise awareness and have a good time.”

Whitted says he hopes Saturday’s march will be the beginning of an ongoing Black Lives Matter organization.

More than 200 people are planning to attend, according to the event’s Facebook page. The event post also reminds attendees not to bring weapons or drugs, and includes instructions on what to do if you witness police harassment or use of force.

The March will begin at 7 PM Saturday evening at Veterans Memorial Park and proceed down Elm Street.
