A Black Lives Protest Just Turned Into a Barbecue Event with Police*
By Amanda Froelich
What was intended to be a Black Lives Protest turned into a mega gathering of activists and police on Sunday after protestors and officers agreed to come together for a community event.
The Wichita Eaglereports that Gordon Ramsay, the Chief of Police in Wichita, Kansas, took the initiative to collaborate on a cookout in a local park to not only prevent violence between police and protestors but to hold a public forum for community members to ask questions.
As the photos below relay, people came together to enjoy scrumptious bbq food, peacefully confront the police with concerns, play basketball, and even bounce around in a bouncy house.
