Special thanks to journalist/social media expert Sherri Williams for her comprehensive coverage of “The General Body” and “Stand with Baltimore” movements. Her work (in various forms), as it relates to the #Black Lives Matter Movement, is deserving of an award from the Syracuse Press Club.

Peaceful Journey

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

Colton Jones kicks off the peaceful protest on the steps of Hendricks Chapel (Syracuse University).

We found out about last night’s march for social justice via social media (Thanks¬†Syracuse Media Group’s Dave Tobin). The multi-generational, multi-cultural group of peaceful (but vocal) protesters began their journey at Hendricks Chapel, marched through campus (with a brief pause at Bird Library), then despite the wind chill near 20 degrees, hopped on the Connective Corridor before hitting Harrison Street, and eventually occupying a portion of Downtown Syracuse.

In appreciation for the march and the movement, with end with an album that was recorded on this day during the height of the Civil Right Movement (see below).

The marchers staged a sit-in on State Street, in front of the courthouse and justice center, brining downtown traffic to a standstill.
