Black Lives Matter activists Aaron William Clarke and Jessica Angelica are based in Northwest Arkansas.

Aaron William Clarke and Jessica Angelica, with over 80 other Black Lives Matter supporters, demonstrated in Zinc, Arkansas Sunday afternoon calling for the dismantling of the Ku Klux Klan, which has long operated a remote compound in rural Boone County. The peaceful protestors offered a BBQ meal to hundreds of armed Arkansas militia and White Nationalists as county law enforcement closely monitored and controlled the situation.
