THURSDAY: OVER ONE HUNDRED BLACK PASTORS WILL JOIN REV AL SHARPTON, THE FAMILY OF AHMAUD ARBERY & LAWYERS, FOR A WALL OF PRAYER IN FRONT OF GLYNN COUNTY COURTHOUSE
(Monday, November 15, 2021) – Last week, Rev. Al Sharpton’s visit to the trial for the killers of Ahmaud Arbery prompted remarks by defense Attorney Kevin Gough objecting to his presence and other Black pastors in court. Immediately following, Rev. Al Sharpton called for 100 or more Black pastors to stand in solidarity and prayer with the family this Thursday at noon in front of the Glynn County Courthouse.
A motion to clarify his statement by Attorney Gough is set to be filed on Monday. However, according to Rev Sharpton: “There is no way to clarify his insult. It shows basic bias- the same bias that killed Ahmaud Arbery.”
Among Thursday’s co-conveners are Bishop Reginald Jackson, AME Church (African Methodist Episcopal), Rev. Jamal Bryant of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church and others, and more are signing up to Sharpton’s appeal. The attorneys for the family Attorney Benjamin Crump and Lee Merritt, Esquire will be among those standing with the clergy and family.
