On Sunday July 19th, Freedom March NYC, in collaboration with organisations including Warriors in the Garden, Black Womxn’s March, and Strategy for Black Lives, held a Black women's vigil at the Brooklyn Museum -- seen here photographed by John Guerrero. “Black women have carried movements. Who is carrying us?’, the flyer asked, asking New Yorkers to show up for Oluwatoyin “Toyin” Salau, Breonna Taylor, Aiyana Jones, Sha-Asia Washington and Riah Milton, among the many Black women who have lost their lives. And show up they did -- those assembled heard from and honoured the mother of Eric Garner, Gwen Carr, lit candles and said the names of those that have been killed. The police who killed Breonna Taylor still have not faced the full consequences for her murder in her home in Louisville Kentucky -- in fact, two of them are still in their jobs. We must not give up the fight for her, and all Black people murdered by the police.
