The scene was like no other for the Downtown Grenada, an area of the city that for over the past 100 years has had it’s share of protests.
Folks of all ages and races took a knee in protest of the killing of George Floyd, the Minnesota man killed by a Minneapolis police officer in May.
The 100 Black Men of Grenada, Inc., hosted a Town Hall Meeting on the Square to discuss topics of concern. Several speakers took the podium under the Gazebo and touched on topics including police reform, social justice and actionable suggestions for engagement as a part of Grenada’s way of speaking on the subject of police brutality.
Law enforcement officials, local ministers, activists and other citizens took the microphone to discuss how Grenada can prevent something of that magnitude from happening here and remain a safe community.
