Cincinnati Black Lives Matter organizes march

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

After the deaths of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling, Black Lives Matter Cincinnati is calling for change by organizing a protest on Sunday.

It started Thursday night with an Emergency Planning Meeting that was held at the Peaslee Neighborhood Center in OTR.

That is where organizers decided they would hold a march on Sunday at 4 p.m. Sunday’s march will start at District One and proceed to the corner of 13th and Republic. That is the location that Timothy Thomas was killed by a police officer in 2001.

“When you see somebody who is captured on live video being killed when they’re already subdued that’s a producers of outrage, justifiable outrage,” said Black Lives Matter Organizer Brian Taylor.

The goal of Thursday’s meeting was to be able to hear about what the community thinks about these events and find what Taylor described as collective clarity.

“We have to find ways to cope and be able to simultaneously feel and live in the anger that we have but be able to channel it towards making a difference,” said Taylor.

There was a similar message at the African American Cultural Resource Center on the University of Cincinnati’s campus as members of the Bearcat community gathered to decompress and process just what has happened.

“This is incredibly important because it honors the variety of feelings that people are having and it just gives people the opportunity to unify,” said UC Alumna Christina Brown.
