Nashville protests: A look back at May 30, 2020

As a writer for NewsLanded, our founder, Sally Hendrick, has focused on statistics related to the pandemic and the racial equality movement born from it. The following is a quote from one of her articles, which you may read in full here.

"Nashville, Tennessee, is known for having mostly peaceful protests. No matter the cause, past marches with as many as 15,000 people, have shouted for attention for social justice issues, such as women’s rights, LGBT rights, civil rights, and more. In February of 1960, the Nashville sit-ins began at various lunch counters at the Woolworth, Walgreens, Kress, McLellan, and Grants stores along Fifth Avenue North.

Black Lives Matter inspires action in online communities

As a writer for NewsLanded, our founder, Sally Hendrick, has focused on statistics related to the pandemic and the racial equality movement born from it. The following is a quote from one of her articles, which you may read in full here.

"With numerous protests continuing all over the United States to put a spotlight on systemic racism, police brutality, and the lack of education of African American history taught in schools, there is a movement happening in the cloud where groups of people are coming together to educate themselves and others, so they can be informed and do something to contribute. All too often, protests will happen, raising awareness around a news story or isolated situation, but the embers soon die without real change taking place. White people want to do something.
