As the United States experiences a pandemic and a revolution against an oppressive government system, Angelinos gathered in the city of Long Beach, CA to walk in Solidarity for Black & Brown Unity. There has been videos circulating through social media depicting Black on Brown or Brown on Black crime that has caused disturbance with in both communities. Both communities have held themselves accountable for the sour apples that have been causing this friction and have come together during this important time in History as one people. We understand that the hate instilled through misinformation and the politics on systemic racism has fueled the division amongst our people. This photo essay shows to the contrary belief that we should be divided amongst our races. When in fact the only race there is is the human race and united together we can become an unstoppable force. From Ocean & Atlantic to Artesia & Atlantic, 2hours and 35minutes and 9 miles later the group that rallied together in South Long Beach paraded as one through the cities core. A salute to all the cyclist and motorist that blocked off traffic so that walk could reach their destination safely and to all of the individuals that supplied the protesters with water and snacks. When we come together there is no stopping the people, Strength in Numbers. - Joshua Zamudio
