Students walk out in support of Black Lives Matter


LYNNHURST — Several hundred students from Washburn and Southwest high schools walked out of class Tuesday and held a 90-minute rally against racism and police violence in Lynnhurst Park.

The student-led action took place in the hours before a major march in support of the Black Lives Matter movement set off from the Fourth Precinct for City Hall. The North Side precinct has been the focus of demonstrations since shortly after the shooting death of 24-year-old Jamar Clark during a Nov. 15 confrontation with police.
