Repost from @nytimes ✨✨💙 Thousands of people gathered on the @uva campus in #Charlottesville last night in the glow of candlelight, striking a peaceful contrast to the torches wielded by white supremacists on Friday. The vigil was largely organized by word of mouth, and its leaders strove to keep the plans off social media. The result: a warm gathering that provided some small measure of relief to a college town left in turmoil by the weekend’s events. The marchers — many of them college students — retraced the steps of Friday’s march. But instead of torches and racist chants, they carried candles and sang songs of peace. A student read Maya Angelou’s “Still I Rise,” and the group concluded by singing “Amazing Grace” and the “The Good Old Song,” the university’s traditional alma mater. The vigil capped off a quiet day of community grieving in Charlottesville, coming hours after a memorial for #HeatherHeyer, the woman who was killed on Saturday.

22-year-old college student Takiyah Thompson explains why she pulled down a Confederate statue in Durham, NC. She was arrested on two charges of felony inciting a riot—and three misdemeanor charges for bringing down the statue. Thompson is out on bail and spoke to Democracy Now! this morning. See the full, powerful interview with Thompson and Bree Newsome at democracynow.org. #takiyahthompson #confederate #statue #whitenationalism #racism #protest #whitesupremacy #heatherheyer

This morning I woke up to find a message from my friend Rob Kearney. I have never met Rob in person but look forward to doing so. Rob is a member of the @gesundheitinstitute, made famous by the Robin Williams movie, Patch Adams. Rob travels to third world countries, dressed as a clown, to bring smiles to the sick. . This morning Rob told me he bought THIRTY TWO of the LOVE shirts to be raffled off in memory of Heather Heyer, the 32 yr old killed in Charlottesville!!! I am just truly blown away by this beautiful gesture. The only way to defeat hate is with love. #charlottesville #heatherheyer #love #lovewins #letloverule #gesundheitinstitute #patchadams #beautifulhumans

Deandre Harris, 20, said he traveled to Emancipation Park to protest a white nationalist rally when a fight broke out. He said he was chased by a group of white men and beaten with metal poles as he lay helpless on the ground. _____________________________________ The person of interest also goes by the name #DanBorden. The beating was overshadowed by the horrific murder of counter protester Heather Heyer, but it’s getting more deserved attention now because of a viral video of the attack, a concerted effort to identify the five men allegedly involved by journalist and social justice advocate Shaun King, and police confirming that Borden is in fact a person of interest. _________________________________ #deandreharris#marcusmartin#heatherheyer#universityofvirginia#racism#donaldtrump#terrorattack#barackobama#colinkaepernick#marshawnlynch#blacklivesmatter#444#cnn#cbs#worldnews#bbc#nfl#worldstar#loveandhiphophollywood#foxnews#hollywoodunlocked#presidenttrump#cthagod#blm#terrorism#charlottesville#racism#danielborden#amerikkka#jamesalexfieldsjr
