Vigil for Kenyans lost in Garissa Terror Attack, Thursday Night, April 9

As you may already know, on April 2nd, Garissa University in Kenya was attacked by Al-Shabaab. 148 students died during the massacre. Sadly, it has received little news coverage, and many people do not know about it.

This is a clear contrast to what happened with the Charlie Hebdo Massacre in France. Right after the massacre, almost everyone rushed to post the hashtag #jesuischarlie. Why is nothing being done to even acknowledge the death of these young people?

We are seeing in this case, like many others, the murder of hundreds of black lives — unspoken for, misrepresented, devalued, and disrespected. We should not let this tragedy remain invisible; we should hold a vigil to have a space to raise awareness of the issue, but also to serve as a healing space for the people affected.
