‘Black Lives Matter’ Sign Stolen From Church Lawn
Quietly, Jamaica Plain's First Baptist Church has been playing a role in the nation-wide "Black Lives Matter" movement. Last month, someone vandalized a large "Black Lives Matter" sign on the church lawn. This week, the sign was stolen entirely, stakes and all, reported Pastor Ashlee Wiest-Laird. A new sign is already on order, Wiest-Laird said in a Facebook post. Rev. Osagyefo Sekou and Wiest-Laird, among others from First Baptist, travelled to Ferguson, Mo.
