Blair Imani was arrested at a Black Lives Matter protest in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on July 10, 2016. The rally had been organized by three teenage women in response to the shooting death of Alton Sterling, and was meant to be a peaceful protest. It turned chaotic and violent as law enforcement clashed with the protesters.
