Steve Young: Black Lives Matter Atlantic City Rally Set For Labor Day Friday
Atlantic City event will feature George Floyd’s Brother, Terrence Floyd.
In a “Hurley in the Morning” breaking news exclusive, we have confirmed that Atlantic City activist Steve Young is planning an event for Friday, September 4, 2020 (Labor Day Weekend), on the Boardwalk, directly in front of historic Atlantic City Boardwalk Hall.
We have also confirmed from Young that their plans include bringing George Floyd’s brother, Terrence Floyd to speak at the event.
I have also confirmed that they intend to paint BLACK LIVES MATTER on the Boardwalk, directly across from Boardwalk Hall.
I interviewed Steve Young moments ago about the event, which is slated to be a “peaceful Black Lives Matter event.”
“There has been lot of negativity, said Young. “We would like to bring people together. To come together directly out front of Boardwalk Hall,” said Young.
A very well placed source tipped me off to Young’s plans.
Before going to print, I telephoned Young, who couldn’t have been more pleasant and positive.
Unlike the rancor of the previous protest, Young’s intentions here appear to be non-confrontational and positive in nature.
Surely, there will be skeptics, who are worried about another Atlantic City protest and Young’s timing ... the last event was held on July 4th Weekend, and, now a return engagement on Labor Day Weekend.
Steve Young will appear live today, Tuesday, August 18, 2020 at 9:40 a.m., on “Hurley in the Morning,” on WPG Talk Radio 95.5.
We’ll keep you posted regarding any and all developments on the “Hurley in the Morning” Program and here at WPGTalkRadio.com
ADDENDUM: I have spoken with Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small, who advised that the City is reviewing all legalities regarding this planned Steve Young - Black Lives Matter rally.
Additionally, I have learned and confirmed that at this Wednesday’s Atlantic City Council meeting, an agenda item will directly address the removal of Steve Young from both The Atlantic City Planning Board, which he currently chairs, along with his potential removal from The Citizen’s Advisory Committee.
