In Photos: Protesters March in Cities Across America
Demonstrations against police brutality continued on Monday.
The protests have included striking displays of solidarity between the police and demonstrators, but also new images of police violence. Two officers in Buffalo were suspended after video showed them shoving a 75-year-old protester, who was hospitalized with a head injury.
On Thursday night, after a memorial for Mr. Floyd in Minneapolis, peaceful protests continued. In Brooklyn and Detroit, protests ended peacefully despite extending past curfews. In Manhattan, the police made 10 arrests for curfew violations. A group of about 100 protesters endured a spring thunderstorm while demonstrating in Lafayette Park in Washington. The city painted a two-block mural reading “Black Lives Matter,” near the White House, and Mayor Muriel Bowser renamed a section of 16th Street NW: “Black Lives Matter Plaza.”
