Google 100th Anniversary Of The Silent Parade

On Google's home page in the United States is a special Google logo, aka a Doodle, for the 100th anniversary of the "Silent Parade of 1917." On July 28, 1917, nearly 10,000 African American children, women, and men marched down Fifth Avenue in New York City in silence.

Google wrote "it was one of the first mass protests of lynching and anti-black violence in the United States. The parade was precipitated by the East St. Louis Riots of 1917, during which between 40 and 250 Black people were killed and thousands more displaced by white mobs."

Here are some details about this parade from the NAACP.

Today's Doodle commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Silent Parade, and honors those whose silence resonates a century later.
