Relative Quiet as Trump Visits Kenosha

KENOSHA, Wisconsin–If the attendees of the Justice for Jacob Blake block party were bothered by President Donald Trump’s trip to the turbulent city on Tuesday, they weren’t letting on.

“As far as him coming here, I think I’m optimistic,” said Norvelle Woods, who lives nearby.

“I think that all media is always good media, so him being here is positive,” Woods told me, flanked by his small black Cane Corso puppy Okoye (named for the warrior princess played by Danai Gurira in the movie Black Panther.)

“As long as there’s attention to it, we can all come up collectively with solutions.”
