The Black Atlanta Celebs and The BLM were Spotted At ‘African Americans for Hillary’ in Atlanta
Folks were all smiles at the launch of Hillary Clinton “African Americans for Hillary”.
On Friday, October 30th, she kicked off a grassroots event at Clark Atlanta University. Celebrity guests included former NBA player Grant Hill, Georgia House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams, Mayor Kasim Reed and Congressman John Lewis.
The event was emceed by media maven and entrepreneur Karen Civil, and the national anthem was sung by seven-time Grammy-nominated American R&B singer and songwriter Kelly Price. We also spotted singer Usher, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s Ariane Davis and others. But it came with controversy. Her speech was interrupted during her speech by protesters chanting, Black Lives Matter.
At the event, Clinton laid out how she planned to address issues important to the African American community, but as she spoke, about a dozen “Black Lives Matter” protesters were near the front of the stage chanting. I’m sorry they aren’t listening, because a lot of what they want, I’m offering.
According to 11 Alive, protesters held a banner referencing Anthony Hill, who was shot and killed by a DeKalb County police officer.
Here’s footage of the event.
