Photos from the Movement for Black Lives Convening

July 31, 2015

AFC's Community Organizer Maxx Boykin attended the first Movement for Black Lives Convening on July 24-26 in Columbus, OH, a weekend-long gathering of people uniting to bring racial justice for Black Americans to fruition. He captured photos throughout the weekend, including a moment when he and several other Convening attendees were pepper-sprayed by local police. HIV's disproportionate impact on the Black community was one of many topics discussed at the Convening.
