Porsha posted a video to her Instagram page of her among a large group of peaceful protesters listening to Tupac’s ‘Changes.‘ The Bravolebrity spoke directly to her followers regarding the demonstrations in the ATL.

The damage:

In a post to the ‘gram from later that day, Porsha wrote “We have the right to freedom of assembly, the right to freedom of association, and the right to freedom of speech. Although today here in Atlanta that was taken away from us. A very peaceful group of us protesters had pepper spray bombs thrown at us! In the post right before this one you can hear the music & peaceful chanting right before we were had bombed! SMH -What a shame to try to silence the people once again. ✊🏾💔#Bloodline “Enough is enough!”

Social activism is in Porsha’s blood:

According to Bravo.com, Porsha’s “Grandfather, Hosea Williams, was a famed civil rights activist who worked with Martin Luther King Jr.”

Porsha opened up about protesting and shared her firsthand account of being a part of the peaceful protest. “I suggest that you do be a part of a peaceful march in your community. When I went out, what I witnessed was young people who were very intelligent. They had a message. They were articulate.”
