Approximately 500 or so people converged in front of the Durham Police Precinct for a march in solidarity with Baltimore (organized by the Durham Solidarity Center) in the wake of the murder of 25 year old Freddie Gray. Citizens from all over the Triangle and all walks of life assembled on the sidewalk and eventually overflowed into the street. The tone of the rally was occasionally somber, but more jubilant than anticipated given the news of charges being brought against the 6 police officers responsible for Grey’s death. Many participants held signs commenting on the problems with police brutality. One woman who waved a large white sign with “Justice for Jesus Huerta” scrawled in big black letters volunteered that her marriage to a west Indian black man decades ago was a cause of much racism, said that she was at the rally because she couldn’t bear her children living in a world as racist as her own.
