Roughly one year ago, shortly following the murder of George Floyd, Shawn Dromgoole, a then-29-year-old Black man who had lived in the same neighborhood in Nashville, Tenn., for his entire life, found that he no longer felt safe walking around that neighborhood alone.
Dromgoole shared those sentiments in a post on neighborhood-focused social network Nextdoor, and hundreds of his neighbors responded by showing up to walk alongside him, which helped spark a nationwide trend of neighborhood solidarity walks.
