St. Pete community rallies together on 25th death anniversary of Tyron Lewis

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (WFLA) – The International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement gathered on 18th Avenue and 16th Street on Sunday to honor Tyron Lewis.

“25 years of pain, anger, sorrow, frustration… everything,” a community member said.

Lewis’ family and members of the community are still fighting for justice.

“When we raise up Tyron Lewis’ name, we are constantly reminded and we’re constantly exposing the nature of this social system that takes the lives of African people with impunity,” said Akile Anai with the African People’s Socialist Party.

Anai said the killing of Lewis left a stain on the city.

“It also marked a really important historic rebellion here in the city of St. Pete,” she said.
