Black Lives Matter Rally Held On Boston City Plaza Following Biden Win


BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — As Kamala Harris prepares to become the first woman of color to hold the office of Vice President, local activists from the Black Lives Matter movement say they're still going to be calling for racial justice.

With a DJ blasting Beyoncé across City Hall Plaza Sunday afternoon, at least 100 activists turned up to dance in celebration of the Biden/Harris victory.

But BLM organizer Monica Cannon-Grant said she also wants to make sure that Vice President-elect Harris answers for what she calls a poor record of criminal justice.

"The DNC should be thanking Black women in Atlanta, South Carolina, and across this country because Black women again have saved them," she said. "We're going to pull up to the table and have a conversation."

Cannon-Grant plans to keep her foot on the gas and continue to hold rallies for racial equality.

"If you ever wonder what a civil rights movement looks like, welcome!" Cannon-Grant told the crowd. "The question is; what side will you land on?"
