Dakota Midday: Voices of Rapid City Anti-Racism Rally
The Stand Strong Against Racism Rally in front of the Rapid City Civic Center drew a crowd of roughly 350 people Tuesday night. The rally was in response to an incident at a January hockey game in which students from the American Horse School on the Pine Ridge Reservation were reportedly showered with beer and racial slurs.
Tuesday's rally included a number of speakers and Lakota songs. In attendance were members of both the Native and non-native community.
SDPB’s Charles Michael Ray took his microphone to the rally and asked some of the people there why they chose to come out on a cold night and take part in the event.
