August Alsina Visits Baton Rouge, Meets Alton Sterling’s Aunt


August Alsina Baton Rouge

August Alsina visited Baton Rouge, Louisiana—where Alton Sterling was shot and killed by police officers last week—in order to reflect on race relations and ask for change.

The New Orleans native met with Sterling’s aunt and the store owner who witnessed the deadly shooting. “2 People of God with Amazing strength,” he wrote. “But just because we’re strong doesn’t mean we don’t hurt.”

On Sunday night (July 10) he led a crowd in prayer, who were gathered in front of the store where the shooting took place. Alsina brought 2 videographers with him on the trip to document the protests, rallies, and conversations he had with family and others in the community. He will be releasing it as a film soon.

See some of the moments below.
