WAXHAW, N.C. (WBTV) - Students gathered to protest Saturday at Marvin Ridge High School after the school rock, painted in support for the “Black Lives Matter” movement, was defaced.

The protest was organized as a peaceful rally to protest for equality.

The rock is often painted by students throughout the year.

However, it was recently painted as a stand of solidarity with the uprisings and protest for equality after the murder of George Floyd.

Then, that rock was painted over by vandals.
