Black pastors from multiple states will support the family of Ahmaud Arbery after a defense attorney requested no more Black pastors sit in the courtroom.

Black pastors from around the nation are answering the call to support the family of Ahmaud Arbery in court during the trial for the three white men accused of killing the 25-year-old Black jogger.

The news comes after defense attorney Kevin Gough objected last week to the presence of Rev. Al Sharpton in the courtroom, where he also requested no more “Black pastors” sit in the courtroom with Arbery’s family, alleging it was intimidating the jury.

“If we’re going to start a precedent, starting yesterday, where we’re going to bring high-profile members of the African American community into the courtroom to sit with the family during the trial in the presence of the jury, I believe that’s intimidating and it’s an attempt to pressure,” Gough said on Thursday.

“We don’t want any more Black pastors coming in here or other Jesse Jackson, whoever was in here earlier this week sitting with the victim’s family trying to influence a jury in this case.”
