The event, dubbed “BBQing While Black, ” was one community’s powerful response to what many perceived as yet another example of everyday racism.

It all started on April 29, when a white female reportedly called police on a few black people who, she mentioned, were utilizing a charcoal grill in an area where it was banned, according to CNN affiliate KRON.
