“Say her name! Say her name!” Last Saturday, one year after her killing at the hands of Kentucky police as part of a botched raid, around 200 people gathered near Mission High to honor Breonna Taylor—and decry the lack of action locally and nationally to defund the police and dismantle a racist justice system. (Former Louisville, Kentucky, cop, Sergeant Brett Hankison was indicted on ‘wanton endangerment charges in the raid that let to Taylor’s killing not charged with any crimes related to Taylor’s death. Other involved officers were not criminally charged.)
It was a march and protest full of radical spirit, though much smaller than the demonstrations that brought out solidarity with Black lives last year, and which were juxtaposed by Dolores Park tennis players calmly continuing their game as protesters called for justice behind them. Here are photos by Lucas Thornton of the rally. —Marke B.
