KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Kansas City church has replaced a stolen “Black Lives Matter” sign in time for Easter.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/1SqOnNc ) reports that the All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church hung the new banner after a previous one was stolen in January. The 2014 death of Michael Brown in Ferguson helped spawn the national “Black Lives Matter” movement.

All Souls minister Kendyl Gibbons says the story of the cross and Easter is interpreted through the prism of race. Gibbons says the black church identifies with the cross and “what it means to be persecuted by authority and to suffer for no reason but the arbitrary twists of history.”
