Black Lives Matter signs
Four signs from the June 6, 2020 Black Lives Matter protests for George Floyd and Breonna Taylor at Cookeville's Courthouse Square. One sign includes a Pride and Black Lives Matters statement. Three are black and white and one is colored. The protests attracted 200 plus on June 6 and protests continued for days following the initial protest. Threats occurred to participants and some were investigated by the FBI for being associated with a terrorist organization proposed by Trump called "antifa".
The archivist solicited alumni Olivia Hendricks and student Mohera Narimetla for the signs they used in the June 6, 2020 protests.
