Hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons speaks during an event at Tribeca Performing Arts Center in New York, on October 27, 2009US celebrities called for a boycott to take place Friday -- one of the busiest US shopping days -- to protest a grand jury's decision not to prosecute a police officer who fatally shot a black teen. A number of well-known figures, among them hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, have signed onto the action, under the Twitter hashtags #NotOneDime and #BlackoutBlackFriday. Also backing the campaign was TV star Jesse Williams, while journalist Soledad O'Brien retweeted a message with the hashtag #NotOneDime. So let's talk to 'em," Williams tweeted, along with a link to a video compilation of police brutality.

A protester waves a flag during a demonstration outside the police station in Ferguson, Missouri, on November 26, 2014The streets of Ferguson were decidedly calmer on Wednesday after two days of nationwide protests against the decision not to prosecute a white policeman who shot dead an unarmed black teenager. Just a few dozen protesters and clergy braved rain and light snow to protest outside the police department in the St Louis suburb, where 18-year-old Michael Brown was killed on August 9. A Missouri grand jury decided Monday not to prosecute Officer Darren Wilson, who fired the fatal shots -- a move that inspired coast-to-coast anger in the United States as well as a rally across the Atlantic in London. After they were rebuffed, extra police and a National Guard Humvee were drafted to protect the building.
