MANCHESTER — After two black men were shot and killed by police officers in the past few weeks, people in Manchester continued to help build the Black Lives Matter movement Saturday.
About 100 people marched down Elm Street chanting "black lives matter" over and over again as they held signs to spread their message. The event was organized by Tyrell Whitted, an 18-year-old who is upset about the recent events and decided to try and do something about it.
"It's more than a police issue, it's more than a black issue, it's a criminal justice issue," Whitted said. "We're speaking about it because black people are [treated] unjust the most."
"In every man's chest there is a heart so we're not all that different," said Addy Simwerayi, a Manchester resident. "Every life matters, to me I don't consider anybody black or white. You know what I mean, cause we just humans, we all bleed the same color red."
