Camdenton, Mo Protest

Title (Dublin Core)

Camdenton, Mo Protest

Description (Dublin Core)

Following the death of George Floyd, there were protests in many major cities. There also were protests in small rural towns as well. Camdenton is a tourist town near the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri. Protesters were at the main intersection in town, in front of the courthouse. Here, there was no standoff with police. During the time I was there, I only saw them drive by. Many shared stories of times they experienced racism, we also sang and chanted.
I believe it is important because, in the middle of a pandemic, people risked their health to gather and protest for what they feel is right.
