Valdosta, GA- Hundreds gathered in downtown Valdosta at the Lowndes County Courthouse on Saturday for a rally and march to support the family of Kendrick Johnson. The rally, hosted by the Georgia State Conference of the NAACP, featured speeches by Johnson’s parents, their attorney CB King, and conference president Edward DuBose.

Saturday marked the first major rally since the teenager’s body was exhumed and taken to Florida for a second, independent autopsy. While many speakers highlighted the Lowndes County investigation and called for social justice, DuBose used a famous quote from Malcolm X to make his point, saying, “if we are going to win this fight, it’s going to be ‘by any means necessary.'”

The results from that second autopsy are expected to be completed and released within the next two weeks.
