Barbequeing while Black event at Lake Merritt

Aloysius McMahan from Oakland made a shirt representing the reason why he and many others in the Black community were at Lake Merritt in Oakland, Calif., barbecuing at the “BBQ-ing while Black” event at the lake off Lakeshore Avenue on Sunday, May 20, 2018. Hundreds in the African American community came out to Lake Merritt in response to a confrontation caught on video there a few weeks ago when someone complained to police about a group of black people barbecuing.
