Marching for rights photo

The NAACP held a rally and marched Saturday on Temple Street in Villa Rica in support of Black Lives Matter. James Stocks, president of the NAACP, said that the event was two-fold: to bring attention to the ongoing situation and to help assure young people that the group is standing behind them. The march was one of several similar events that have taken place in recent weeks in Carroll County. “Black Lives Matter; we don’t want people to forget that,” said Stocks.
