#BlackOutParchman is a MOVEMENT!

As cities are protesting around the country, online, and in the streets, there is a movement going on behind the penitentiary walls of Mississippi.

At one point she even states “Call the police. Because I just said nigga.” Upon making the statement- she repeated it over and over again. We currently gathering more…
