Wicked Local Hingham: Hundreds flock to Hingham vigil to say “Black Lives Matter”

Bearing candles and signs with messages like “if you’re not livid, you’re not listening” and “when one can’t breathe, none of us can breathe,” hundreds of people gathered outside of St. John the Evangelist Church Tuesday night for a solemn vigil in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

“We are outraged, we are grieving. And we know that there’s work to be done,” said Katie Sutton, an organizer of the vigil.

Hingham Unity Council, a group that Sutton helped form last year to facilitate community discussions around topics like race, socio-economic inequality and LGBT+ issues, led the event.
