Maplewood “March For Black Lives” planned

A social-distancing (wear a mask), kid-friendly “March for Black Lives” is scheduled for Saturday morning at 11 a.m. in Maplewood, meeting in Sutton Loop Park.

According to the event listing on Facebook: After brief remarks in Sutton Loop Park, the march will travel north on Sutton Boulevard, east on Manchester Road, north on Oakview Terrace, west on Zephyr Place, and south on Sutton back to the park. Any with limited mobility or who want to join from a distance are encouraged to participate from anywhere along the route, including on Manchester or in Ryan Hummert Park.

An organizer said on Facebook that this event grew out of the “small, leaderless action that has been ongoing at Big Bend and Manchester since June 1.”

  1. As a journalist, why no mention whether this is a permitted march? Will traffic be blocked?
