Beyonce & Jay Z Meet with Freddie Gray's Family in Baltimore

Beyonce and Jay Z met with the family members of Freddie Gray and Mike Brown at the Rally 4 Peace concert on Sunday (May 10) in Baltimore, Maryland.

The concert, which was streamed in part on Jay Z‘s Tidal, was meant to bring awareness and peace to the area after weeks of massive protests.

Freddie, a 25-year-old African American man, was placed under arrest in April and ended up in a coma in the police car. He died from injuries to his spinal cord. Michael was fatally shot last year by Darren Wilson, a Ferguson police officer. Both deaths brought protests to the cities of Baltimore and Ferguson, respectively.

Prince performed at the concert and gave his thoughts to the crowd: “The system is broken. We gotta fix it by building a new one right here, right now. It’s gonna be all right, y’all. It’s gonna be all right. We’re gonna figure this thing out,” Prince said.

After the concert, Beyonce and Jay Z, along with Alicia Keys and Bey‘s mom Tina Knowles, posed for photos with the family members. See the photos below..

    Photo op! Since when does Jay-Z and Beyonce become interested in anything outside of their circle. Oh, TIDAL isn’t doing well and they need the publicity.

    I hope you need a cop someday, scumbag!

    Ok, pigs don’t count so that means you don’t count, but officers most certainly count, at least to intelligent people.

    The press wasnt even invited to the meeting, that’s why these are IG pictures. They did the same thing with Trayvon Martin’s family. They’ve both worked/donated a lot with PoC and women, Beyoncé even started a cosmetology center to help alcoholic and drug addicted women gain a skill that could help them get jobs. Not everything is about money, contrary to popular belief.

    Yeah and why isn’t the media saying ‘A black person killed a white cop!’ regarding the recent shooting of Brian Moore? Such a disgusting double standard.

    Thanks for that. The media have a tendency to show us what will bring in clickers and posts. It would have been great if they had added something more substantive such as what you have written.
