Ben Affleck was among the thousands who took to the streets on Tuesday to protest the death of George Floyd and show his support of the #BlackLivesMatter movement.
The 47-year-old actor was photographed in Venice Beach, marching in a protest in support of the area’s historic African-American community.
In addition to a sign reading “Black Lives Matter,” he held another sign reading “Save First Baptist Church of Venice.”
March for #GeorgeFloyd in #Venice today. Blessed to have @BenAffleck express awareness and concern for the local Historic Black Community in #VeniceBeach that has been long ignored and obstructed by local politicians, LAPD, and commerce bullies. #SaveVenice #DefendOakwood pic.twitter.com/Y1yLOn07GW
