This past weekend on December 13, 2014 one of the largest, if not the largest march was held in New York city to protest against racism within police departments across the country, escalated killings of African American men by police, and the non-indictments if said police officers. The count was more than 50,000 peaceful demonstrators. There were no reports of looting, arrests, or violence. The march was organized by two African American woman along with their affiliate organizations. They are Umaara E. (@umaaralynaas, right) and @TheSynead, left).
Many notable faces joined in on the march. Celebs such as the cast of Orange is the New Black, rapper Nas, mogul Russell Simmons, and world renowned fashion blogger, Claire Sulmers of The Fashion Bomb Daily. Peep the pics below.

Big round of applause to the women who created a piece of history. Umaara is only nineteen years old. Nineteen! I'd love to see what she does when she's in her twenties. I'm in the south, so I joined the march by using my platform to spread the word. Congrats ladies, I'm proud.
