Stand Up :: Black Lives Movement, San Marcos TX

San Marcos based filmmaker and YouTube channel owner Russel Reed recently documented the #BlackLivesMatter march that took place in response to the killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castille at the hands of police officers.  The march focused a bit on police brutality, but the main goal was awareness of learning how to mobilize the black community as a connected unit, whether that be through educating the masses of the struggle, educating us on our economic power, or educating us on how we can make a difference at the polls.  The protest was a peaceful one, and it opened many eyes in this community to how the broader issues can ultimately effect us all.
