Black Joy Reigned Supreme at Rise Up Fight Back March

A couple dozen racist ralliers intent on “uniting the right.” Met by thousands of counter protestors resisting white supremacy.  Sunday’s “Rise Up Fight Back” March in Washington D.C. was a powerful demonstration of how Black joy, celebration and protest can prevail against hate, bigotry and other hallmarks of White nationalism in our country. 

Led and organized by grassroots organizations dedicated to Black liberation, including our Media Action Grassroots Network members, BYP 100 and Black Lives Matter DC,  this weekend’s response to “Unite the Right 2”—the images of which have reached millions via social media—continued the long-standing tradition of Black-led movements leading the resistance to racism and state-sanctioned violence.
