For more than four years not a month has gone by without a monthly vigil in support of Black Lives Matter in Jamaica Plain. Thursday night's vigil will resonate even stronger due to recent events. The murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, have led to protests across the country, and heightened the focus on Black Lives Matter again. In Jamaica Plain there has been a monthly Vigil in Support of Black Lives Matter since January 2016. JP's vigil has had guest speakers such as Fran Smith of Community Organizer at Community Change; Leon Smith, Executive Director of Citizens for Juvenile Justice; and Charles Wallace-Thomas IV of the Boston Ujima Project.
