Solange Knowles Trayvon Martin Protest: Singer Organizes Peaceful Rally In Brooklyn (PHOTOS)

Solange Knowles was one of the thousands of people around the country who took to the streets for peaceful demonstrations and emotional protests following the news that George Zimmerman was found not guilty for the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. The singer/DJ/model helped organize a rally at Borough Hall in downtown Brooklyn.

With a few hundred fellow frustrated citizens in attendance, Solange, who was dressed in a dark t-shirt, cut-off shorts and Loeffler Randall espadrilles, spoke to the crowd and carried a sign inscribed with a quote by Malcolm X that read: I'm for truth, no matter who tells it. I'm for justice, no matter who it's for or against.

And while the 27-year-old singer protested against injustice in NYC, her superstar sister Beyoncé made a show of support by halting her concert in Nashville, Tenn. on Saturday in for a moment of silence.
