The organization whose mission is to intervene in violence inflicted on black communities is getting attention in one Maryland county.
Monday was the first day of "Black Lives Matter Week of Action" at Prince George's County Schools. Students and staff in the county are being encouraged to participate in activities and discussions about the issues before, during and after school hours.
The school board approved the resolution on Thursday making it one of the first school districts in the state of Maryland to do so. On Monday, the first day, people were encouraged to wear all black.
