On Sunday (Aug. 23), Ahmaud’s family hosted “I’m with Maud,” a community bike ride to honor him and his legacy. They rode 2.23 miles alongside Brunswick community members demanding justice for the 25-year-old.
“I can live with an accident, but the way it happened and the way he got killed, that’s something I can’t accept,” he continued. “This man was lynched, straight up lynched, so that’s hard to deal with.”
“It means a great deal, like I said, it doesn’t have to be a big crowd, because at the end of the day, this 50 people can go touch hundreds of people in the community and tell them about this event,” he said. “It can be a great turnout next time or encourage somebody to vote, or encourage somebody to get involved some type of way.”
As REVOLT reported, Ahmaud’s cousin Tracy Walker, who plays for the Detroit Lions, will be honoring him on his NFL platform by wearing a helmet with his name on it and T-shirts with his face on them underneath his jersey.
