Poets And Performers At The Troy Rally For Black Lives

During the middle section of the Troy Rally for Black Lives, most of the crowd left the riverfront and marched through downtown Troy to send a message to the City and the Troy Police. Meanwhile, several speakers and performers stayed behind with the remaining crowd. This segment includes:
Aaron reading from the play Whitewashed with D Colin;
D Colin reading her poems “For Every Black Woman Who’s Been Called Angry,” and “If I Ever Get Questioned About Doing Too Many Black Poems”;
Anastasia Robertson reading from a letter she discovered online, entitled “Dear Black Americans;”
D Colin re-reading her poems for the returning marchers;

Included in this segment is the poet Jade, near the close of the Rally, reading two unnamed poems.
