Conscious singer Janelle Monae marched through Times Square in a Black Lives Matter rally. She brought her loud, proud “Hell You Talmbout” posse, including members of her Wondaland Arts Society: Jidenna, St. Beauty, Roman GianArthur, George 2.0 and Deep Cotton.

Chanting “say his name” and “say her name,” the crew let tourists and residents alike hear their cry against police brutality, just as the anti-police-violence song “Hell You Talmbout” hit the streets.
