Radical Monarchs, Richmond Troop 2, is organizing a Public Action surrounding Black Lives Matter Sat., Feb. 25 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. near the Richmond Art Center (RAC) between 25th and 27th Streets on Barrett Ave. in Richmond.

Then, from 1-2 p.m., the group will move inside the RAC to take in the Art of the African Diaspora exhibit at 2540 Barrett Ave. Read the Standard’s article about the exhibit here.

The Radical Monarchs said it creates “opportunities for young girls and gender expansive youth of color to form fierce friendships, celebrate their identities and contribute radically to their communities,” per its website.

The two-part effort falls during Black History Month in February. For more info contact Richmond Troop Leader Arnita at [email protected].
