In response to a violent and deadly demonstration by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Va., Aug. 12, hundreds of people attended peaceful events in Louisville yesterday, Aug. 13, condemning racism and the white supremacy movement. Black Lives Matter organized a rally and march, above, that began at the Braden Center in West Louisville. Mayor Greg Fischer and the Metro Council gathered with the public at Jefferson Square Park in downtown Louisville to show support for those affected by the violence in Virginia. An interfaith vigil with area religious leaders was held at St. Paul United Methodist Church in the Highlands. One woman was killed at the Virginia rally and at least 20 others were injured.
