NWA Black Lives Matter in support of Freddie Gray!
The protest was pulled together in a few small days and the word didn't have time to spread as well as it could have. Not to mention on the day itself, several other events were going on around town like the opening of the Razorback Greenway, the Farmers Market (great weather for it too), etc.
