Beyonce stopped her concert for a moment of silence in the wake of George Zimmerman's not guilty verdict.
And now her sister Solange Knowles has used the message once spoken by human rights activist Malcolm X to express her outrage after Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges in the shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin.
With her miniature braids falling to her knees, the 27-year-old entertainer held the rally on Sunday at Borough Hall in Brooklyn, New York.
Solange held a plaque between her hands which quoted Malcolm X's words: 'I'm for truth, no matter who tells it. I'm for justice, no matter who it's for or against.'
She remained somber and calm while speaking in front of a crowd that numbered in the hundreds.
Solange wore cut-off denim shorts and a plain navy T-shirt, along with patterned oxfords and virtually no make-up.
'Seeing & gathering with people today/tonight all for the same fight helped to restore my faith in humanity...,' Solange tweeted.
Earlier in the evening, Solange gave out a big hug to all who showed up at the rally.
'Thank you to everyone who came out to support #Bklyn4trayvon rally! This was just a start to a long journey of Justice and Equality!' Solange wrote.
Beyonce deserved a little retail therapy after the busy week she had.
The 31-year-old singer, whose net worth is estimated to be $300 million, must have given shoppers quite the surprise when she breezed into Target department store in Houston, Texas a day ahead of her scheduled concert.
Beyonce must have a closet full of accessories, but was in the mood for more as she made a beeline for the hats.
The entertainer, who's been on a relentless pace for her Mrs. Carter Show world tour, was seen trying on a few selections including a couple of wide-brimmed versions.
Beyonce was no doubt in low-profile mode wearing dark shades, black mini-skirt and T-strap sandals.
Her fabulous golden-highlighted hair was loose and tousled around her shoulders, and she didn't seem to care if it got messy from the constant trying on of chapeaux.
Beyonce appeared to have a trolley that already had several items placed in it.
It's widely known that Target is one of Beyonce's favourite stores and has staged publicity events with the chain for previous albums.
