Porsha Williams, who is the granddaughter of civil rights leader, Hosea Williams, shared why she was participating in the peaceful protest over the weekend. She states:
I’m just like anybody else. I may be young but I am here to be a voice for the voiceless. What is going on in black America is not okay. We are not okay. We just wanna live and I am out here today to make sure that everybody understands that black lives matter. We want justice for George Floyd’s family.”
“I know one cop has been arrested. We would like the other cops to be arrested and charged with murder and we are gonna protest until it is done. We’re sitting out here for anybody, any family who has suffered from police brutality. We are done. We’re tired and we are not gonna take it anymore. We’re not gonna sit at home. We’re going to march. We’re gonna lift our voice and we are gonna be heard.”
Williams also went live on Instagram to talk about how watching the video of George Floyd’s detainment and death made her feel “traumatized.”
