The dry heat beaming down from the sun’s rays couldn’t stop family, friends and supporters from rallying together on the two-year anniversary of Eric Garner’s death.
About 50 people came out Sunday afternoon behind the banner of “Black Lives Matter” in front of Bay Beauty Supply, at 202 Bay St. in St. George, where Eric Garner died in police custody.
Jewel Miller, Garner’s ex-girlfriend and mother to their daughter, Legacy, had only one thing to say:”Two years later, no justice on Staten Island.”
But Garner wasn’t the only one being remembered on Sunday.
