A silent march led by religious leaders took place on Sunday in Tacoma’s Hilltop neighborhood, to honor Manuel Ellis ahead of the one-year anniversary of his killing by Tacoma police on March 3, 2020.

Ellis, 33, was a Black man, musician, and father of two.

About 200 people, mostly dressed in white, walked silently to the beat of a single drum along Martin Luther King Jr. Way for one mile, from South 23rd Street to People’s Park.

The march was modeled after the 1917 ‘Silent Parade,’ in which nearly 10,000 Black women, men, and children marched through Manhattan wearing white in protest of racist violence.
