TULSA, Okla. — A national group marched in Tulsa on Saturday.
It’s part of a three-day Black Power Convention that is planned during Memorial Day Weekend.
Nick Bezzel, is one of the organizers of the 2nd amendment march. Bezzel is the founder of the Elmer Geronimo Pratt Gun Club in Austin, Texas. The chapter is named after a famous member of the Black Panthers.
Bezzel said the march will bring black organizations and leaders together in Tulsa to show a sign of strength and solidarity. He said, “When you’re talking about one of the greatest atrocities that happened in America, that happened to black people 100 years ago, what better time to have all these organizations come together and show a unified front.” Bezzel said the march is not about violence and added, “We aren’t coming as an occupying force or to cause chaos, we are coming to pay homage to our ancestors who lost their live 100 years ago during the massacre.”
The Tulsa Massacre Second Amendment March is planned for Saturday, May 29th. The group has been working with the city to get a permit for their armed march.
