The running community rallied with Unnamed Run Crew and their fearless leaders Leandrew Belnavis and Liz Rock. Tuesday night's ride from the fort at Castle Island in South Boston was somber, connective, and hopeful. Boston is still showing up. Here's the rundown email from the source, UNMD:
"Thank you for attending our Ride for Breonna Taylor - We're still coming down from feelings of last night; it was nothing short of INCREDIBLE. We cannot begin to express our sincere appreciation and gratitude for everyone that joined us in celebration of Breonna Taylor's life. Breonna Taylor was an aspiring nurse working as an EMT. She was known for her unparalleled kindness. She had dedicated her whole life to serving others. We should all aim to be more selfless and incorporate acts of service in our daily life.
Malcolm X said, "The most disrespected person in America is the Black Woman. The most unprotected person in America is the Black Woman. The most neglected person in America is the Black Woman." Regrettably, 58 years later, these words still ring true.
We still have collective work to do. Showing up to an event and posting something on social media is one thing, but continuing the work is vital. We will keep fighting. We will continue riding for her. We will continue to say her name.
We want to offer our thanks to our speakers: our very own Liz Rock, Sherin Nassar, Tiffany Cogell and U-Meleni Mhlaba-Adebo.
Special thanks to all the volunteers who held it down, the man behind the lens, Jason Williams, and Blackbird Donuts for the post snacks :)
