MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Black Lives Matter Memphis is speaking out about the graffiti and vandalism that happened at Graceland and the Levitt Shell this week.
Thursday, they told FOX13 that their organization had no involvement in the spray paint to Graceland or the Levitt Shell.
They said they don’t condone acts of violence or hate and they’re starting a partnership with the Levitt Shell to host events at the venue that promote peace and unity in Memphis.
The organizer of Black Lives Matter Memphis, P. Moses, said although the organization had no involvement, the act shouldn’t be ignored.
“That’s not something that we would participate in, but we don’t want people to miss the message and the vandalism, because somebody did that and whoever did that, did it for one or two reasons,” Moses said.
They’re also raising money to continue the cleanup process at the Levitt Shell and the partnership to host future events.
