Candlelight Vigil For Philando Castile and Alton Sterling

In Summer 2016 Kesho Wazo hosted a candlelit vigil in memory of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile in Portland, Maine. It brought almost 600 people together with a candle lighting at Portland's City Hall and a march throughout the downtown area. At the event, the youth of the community displayed their talents by performing spoken word pieces, poetry, and singing as the march went on, with performances at City Hall, the Portland Police station and Monument Square.
