Amid protest, African-American embraces police
The city lives a time of tension following the murder of an African-American at the hands of the police in previous days.
For this reason, activist Ken Nwadike hit the streets approaching the police officers and the protesters to embrace them.
"I see them [to the police] as human beings, as I see all here [the protesters] as human beings." We are all human. His uniform does not make it a robot, in the same way that their skin color a criminal does not,"he said.
And he added, "none of the people that are here has skyrocketed to no one".
Nwadike, of 34 years, the free hugs project began after the bombing of the Boston Marathon in 2013 under the slogan: "spread love, inspiring change and contributes to the awareness of social problems through motivational videos".
