NIAGARA FALLS, ON (WIVB) The lights of both the American and Canadian Horseshoe Falls will not shine on Tuesday night.

In solidarity with the black community and in recognition of Blackout Tuesday, the Niagara Falls illumination Board says the falls will go dark from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m.

 Blackout Tuesday was originally started by the music industry. It is intended as a collective pause to spark honest, reflective, and productive conversations about what actions can be taken to support the Black community.
