Responding to Anti-black violence: Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children
We suggest that there are similarities in the police violence that took place in Selma, Alabama on what is known as “Bloody Sunday” and the police violence that took place at the Stonewall Inn in New York city on June 28, 1968. We from the very beginning of our project have made no suggestions of equivalence between the struggles for equality and justice by blacks and by gays. But, today as much of the nation is aware of anti-black violence perpetrated by police, we hope that awareness and memories of police violence at Stonewall, will contribute to deeper understandings of why, often in black communities, some police are viewed not as protectors against violence, but as perpetrators of it.
