Kids bring hope to the future with 'Black Lives Matter' toddler march

Organizer Narcisse Jordan wanted a safe way to involve her young children in activism.

CLEVELAND — Viral videos have been sweeping social media - showing kids, some still in strollers, peacefully chanting "Black Lives Matter."

The late great Whitney Houston once sang "I believe the children are the future. Teach them well and let them lead the way," and that's exactly what 26- year-old, Cleveland native Narcisse Jordan did when she organized a "Black Lives Matter" toddler march.

"A lot of parents want to go out and protest, but we can't really feel safe and take our children, and I also thought this would be a good way for children to express themselves," explained Jordan. 

On Friday, June 19, a group of around 70 parents and kids gathered together to  march together through Euclid Creek Reservation. The children in attendance were able to express themselves with signs, and balloons.

"They are still less than two, but we're talking about what kinds of books we can have in the house to make sure we're teaching them to be anti-racist and teaching them that Black lives matter," said one parent in attendance.

A message loud and clear from the future history makers that there is hope and light at the end of the tunnel.
