Local minister urges the flying of Black Liberation flag this weekend | abc11.com

“While some people are talking about Confederate flags and saying take it down, we’re saying let’s take this flag and raise it up,” said Scott while holding the red, black, and green flag first introduced by political activist Marcus Garvey in 1920. It was later adopted as the Black Liberation flag in the 1960s.

Scott is taking his cause to social media and urging followers to change their profile photos and to use the hashtag #RBGFlag this weekend. He says his message is not anti-American but rather pro-black unity.

“Every ethnic group is proud to raise their flag,” said Scott. “It’s time for us to have that same black pride and raise our flag.”

Scott is no stranger to public causes. He launched anti-violence programs in the Bull City and publicly debated with network news anchors on race-related issues.
