Global Grind reported:
Solange Knowles is keeping her word when it comes to fighting for the justice of Michael Brown, who was shot dead by Officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, St. Louis.
After the Grand Jury’s decision came out to be that they would not indict Wilson, the Saint Records singer spoke out strongly in outrage.
She is taking things a step further, and even postponing her sneaker release with Puma that was scheduled for Black Friday, after many are protesting the shopping day after Thanksgiving.
