Images From Poughekeepsie’s Candlelight Vigil

Hundreds of res­i­dents black, white, and brown from in and around the city of Poughkeepsie turned out to stand in a can­dle­light vig­il to hon­or Gorge Floyd.

Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney and his fam­i­ly turned out to hon­or the mem­o­ry of mis­ter Floyd.

It was a beau­ti­ful and peace­ful can­dle-light vig­il that sent a pow­er­ful mes­sage of togeth­er­ness, young and old black, white and brown stand­ing with heads bowed to hon­or a man who had his life snuffed out by a mon­ster oper­at­ing under the col­or of law.

The scene in Poughkeepsie was a lit­tle bit dif­fer­ent from that in oth­er cities across America tonight. Whether or not it will stay that way is any­body’s guess.
