NAACP holds rally, vigil for Jamar Clark


NAACP President Cornwell William Brooks and Nekima Levy-Pounds, president of the Minneapolis chapter of the NAACP, led a rally and vigil for Jamar Clark Friday evening outside the Minneapolis Police Department’s 4th Precinct.

Hundreds gathered with candles and held up their phones' flashlights as they listened to community leaders honor Clark and make pleas for unity and peace. Longtime civil rights leader Josie Johnson and former Macalester professor Mahmoud El-Kati also addressed the crowd.
