Tamela Mann was brought to tears as she marched alongside her husband and son during a Black Lives Matter protest.
For the Manns, staying at home and protesting through social media is no longer enough. Instead, they opted to join hundreds of others in the streets in protest of racial injustice and police brutality in America.
In an emotional video, the Manns announced that they were trying to do their part in making a difference and letting their voices be heard. In the video, an emotional Tamela is seen wiping her tears as she holds on to a sign that says "We Want Justice."
MARCHING WITH THE CROWD
During the video, the Manns are seen walking on a bare road with hundreds of others, making a couple of pit stops where people are handing out free water to those who are walking. Their march ended in front of the city hall, where they demanded reform in their specific area.
David and Tamela Mann join the growing list of celebrities who have taken it to the streets to protest against police brutality and racial injustice in America. The protests were sparked by the death of George Floyd, a Minneapolis man who died in the hands of police officers after being accused of writing a bad check.
FOLLOWING GEORGE FLOYD'S DEATH
After George Floyd's death, protests happened all over America, naming all those who have died from police brutality incidents in the past, including Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many more.
Celebrities like Michael B. Jordan, Steph and Ayesha Curry, Keke Palmer, Jamie Foxx, Nick Cannon, J. Cole, and many more have stepped out in the name of justice, regardless of where they are from Minneapolis to California to New York. Now, the Manns are joining in.
SIGNS OF SOLIDARITY
Although there have been news reports of chaotic protests and demonstrations happening around America, there have also been many heartwarming incidents that do not get as much publicity. In Miami, a longtime activist named Renita Holmes was approached by a police captain and the pair exchanged kind words and hugs.
Two weeks since protests began, hundreds of thousands await action from various sectors to address issues on racial injustice and police brutality.
WAITING FOR CHANGE
In Queens, New York, police officers knelt down next to protestors as a sign of unity. In Houston, Texas, a police chief said that he would march with the rest of the protesters, but he would not allow their city to be torn down.
Two weeks since protests began, hundreds of thousands await action from various sectors to address issues on racial injustice and police brutality. For now, they continue to march on until their voices are heard.
