On Saturday, February 7, community activists rallied to say, "Black Lives Matter."

The group marched from the Justice Center and ended at the Free Stamp at Cleveland City Hall.

The program moved inside the Rotunda with drummers, speakers and other performers. 

The rally was followed by a Black Flag Raising Ceremony and a Black History Month program, both also at City Hall 

The Underground Railroad, the Task Force for Community Mobilization, PEC, Black on Black Crime, Inc. and a host of other organizations participated in the annual flag raising event.
