Kevin Powell, President of BK Nation, organized and led this peaceful protest in Union Square, Manhattan.  This group eventually joined with another to march to Times Square and literally shut it down Sunday night before marching up through Harlem and on to the Federal Courthouse in the Bronx. In his own words, Powell reported, “There were thousands of us first at Union Square, then at Times Square, where we literally stopped the biggest tourist destination in New York City from moving. Then hundreds of us continued the march of over 100 New York City blocks to Harlem, through some of Manhattan’s wealthiest neighborhoods. Once in Harlem people joined us as we weaved around streets and avenues and in and out housing projects along the way. People joined us, supported us, applauded us for taking a stand for justice.” No Justice. No peace!
