Black Lives Matter Leader Calls for End to Violence

DeRay Mckesson, the leader of Black Lives Matter, called for an end to violence on Sunday, following the horrific shooting in Baton Rogue.

“The movement began as a call to end violence,” Mckesson told The New York Times. “That call remains.”

The Hill reports:

Mckesson was arrested earlier this month in Baton Rouge while protesting the death of Alton Sterling, who was killed by police on July 5.

The East Baton Rouge Parish district attorney dropped the charges on Friday against Mckesson and about 100 other protesters who were arrested.
