Alan Blueford was murdered by Oakland police officer Miguel Masso on May 6, 2012 in an incident of racial profiling. Two years later the Blueford family continues to grieve the painful loss of their son, brother, nephew, cousin, & uncle. This pain will remain constant, but it can be lessened & healed. Unity in the community is healing. The Oakland community has so much it needs to heal from, including the violent, & racially motivated murder of Alan Blueford on May 6, 2012.
On Saturday May 3rd, on the 2 year anniversary of Alan’s passing, we will UNITE in a walk around Lake Merritt as we celebrate Alan’s life & let the Blueford’s & the community at large know that Alan’s life matters–all lives matter,….AND because this IS a celebration, there will be sound….A LOT OF SOUND….like thousands of watts of sub-woofer sound…..:)
