New Orleans march against white supremacy hot but peaceful
NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune
With statues of Andrew Jackson and Supreme Court Justice E.D. White in their sights, hundreds of protesters brave New Orleans' blistering August heat Saturday (Aug 19) to march through the French Quarter against racism and white supremacy.
The rally was to serve two purposes: to commemorate Heather Heyer, who was killed by a white supremacist during a violent protest in Charlottesville, Va., and to call for another round of dismantling statues that honor the Confederacy, slaveholders or past supporters of Jim Crow.
