When T’Anna Kimbrough saw video of George Floyd’s brutal killing by a Minneapolis police officer, she knew what she had to do.

Within days, the founder of Black Lives Matter Morristown was leading hundreds of people in a symbolic funeral procession from Morristown to Morris Township.

“In Morristown, we’re doing it right,” she told the crowd, which made its anger known — peacefully.

The Morristown Green Podcast, episode 4: T’Anna Kimbrough of Black Lives Matter Morristown:

In Episode 4 of the Morristown Green Podcast, Kimbrough, a 30-year-old social worker and mom, talks about what needs to change in America, and why she enlisted for the crusade.

She shares what it’s like to get pulled over for no apparent reason, and how a thin blue line on Woodland Avenue drew her to demonstrate in Morris Township.

Kimbrough also describes how it feels to protest in a pandemic — and why she’s not afraid to cancel rallies that are not organized by Black Lives Matter.
