India Fenner is a remarkable young woman. The 19-year-old Temple University student and activist organized “A March for Black Women,” which drew more than 100 participants Friday afternoon. People began to gather in Dilworth Park at City Hall just after 1 p.m., and then traveled en masse up North Broad Street to Cecil B. Moore Avenue.
Fenner has spoken about how her event was not a protest. Instead, she called it a march to uplift.
“I want black women and girls to know that they’re more than enough,” she said during an interview with Philly.com over the weekend. “That we love them. And that they matter.”
Below are 15 more photos from the walk, which celebrated the diversity of black women and honored black women who’ve been victims of police brutality.
