I guess Black Lives Matter isn’t a big Elvis fan after all. That’s because according to a report, The Memphis Coalition of Concerned Citizens, including Black Lives Matter protesters and others groups, announced their plan to “Shut Down Graceland.” which was the home and estate of Rock and Roll music legend, Elvis Presley, and is located in Memphis, TN.
Excerpt From Fox News:
Protest leaders say the mass demonstration is planned for 6:00 PM Monday. They said they specifically chose Graceland because it is Elvis Week and they know it will raise awareness. Leaders say they also chose Graceland because “it demonstrates one of Memphis’s most common forms of financial inequality and because the site has ties to…the death of unarmed teen Darrius Stewart.” Memphis officer Connor Schilling said Stewart had attacked him before the officer fired shots. A grand jury declined to indict Schilling.
