Protest – Brevard, NC


July 25, 2019

Monday afternoon, the Transylvania County branch of the NAACP gathered at the courthouse to express their concerns about recent tweets from President Trump that have been criticized by many as being racist in their nature. Tommy Kilgore, president of the TC Branch of the NAACP, said the those kind of comments were reminiscent of segregation, Jim Crowe and separate but equal policies.

“We wanted to let people know that we are all Americans, and that we are here to make sure that these things do not re-emerge and re-infect our society,” Kilgore said.
