Date:

 Reverend Al Sharpton and attorney Ben Crump are uniting their voices this Friday in a national call for justice. Sharpton will deliver the eulogy for Angela Carr, a 52-year-old mother of three and grandmother of 14, tragically slain in the Jacksonville Dollar General shooting last month.

The shooting, investigated as a hate crime by the Department of Justice, occurred in a predominantly Black community. The gunman, after being turned away from Edwards Waters University, a historically Black college, targeted the store, ending the lives of three individuals.

Carr, an Uber driver who had just completed her last trip, was shot 11 times, leading her family to opt for a closed casket service. The attack unfolded while Rev. Sharpton led the March on Washington, intensifying national outrage over continued racial violence and white supremacist acts targeting Black Americans.

We’re left asking, in a country still grappling with racial injustice, what actions will finally put an end to such heartbreaking loss?
