Bena Apreala, who was stopped by three ICE agents on VFW Parkway in West Roxbury last Tuesday, ran up and down West Roxbury Parkway today, accompanied by Black Lives Matter supporters, including two passes around the Holy Name rotary, where they were cheered by participants in the now weekly Monday BLM vigil.
As he came into the rotary for the second time, Apreala stopped and posed with supporters:
West Roxbury and Roslindale residents have been holding a vigil at the rotary every Monday afternoon since early June.
The afternoon run was Apreala's second of the day. Earlier, he'd gone running with City Councilor Matt O'Malley (West Roxbury, Jamaica Plain).
