Congresswoman Nikema Williams Statement on the McMichael-Bryan Murder Trial

ATLANTA – Today, Congresswoman Nikema Williams (GA-05) issued the following statement on the guilty verdict for Travis McMichael. Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael, and William “Roddie” Bryan chased down and murdered Ahmaud Arbery, a Black man, outside of Brunswick, Georgia. 

“Ahmaud Arbery should be spending Thursday celebrating Thanksgiving with his family,” said Congresswoman Williams. “Tragically, America is still a country where a Black man is not safe going for a jog. We have much more work ahead so that little Black boys like my son Carter know that their Black lives matter. Although nothing can bring Ahmaud Arbery back, my hope is that his family can find some solace in knowing that those who murdered Ahmaud are being held accountable.”
