On January 1st, 2012, hundreds of people marched from Oscar Grant Plaza (a.k.a. Frank Ogawa Plaza) at 14th & Broadway in Oakland to the Fruitvale BART station for a rally to commemorate Oscar Grant and many more people killed by the police. Three years ago on January 1st, 2009, Oscar Grant, an unarmed black worker, was executed by Johannes Mehserle, a white BART police officer. In the wake of that killing, a major political movement was launched in Oakland and across the country.
Memorial march held in honor of Oscar Grant and other victims of police brutality and murder.
