As USA Today reported, over 1,280 locations throughout the United States have had at least some degree of protesting over the last two-and-a-half-weeks.
With that in mind, chances are good that a Black Lives Matter protest has also taken place near you. And even if you're in a small community of only a few thousand, it's entirely possible that someone has stood alone in it to affirm the sanctity of black lives in the face of systemic racism and police brutality.
But while the idea of a lone protester is not a new phenomenon even in the most recent context, you're not likely to find one younger than the boy we'll be discussing today.
Information about the ongoing protests in the U.S. and around the world is rapidly changing and Diply is committed to providing the most recent data as it becomes available.
