In Photos: Protesters March in Cities Across America




Protests advanced toward a second weekend on Friday,with demonstrations and a memorial planned for George Floyd in Raeford, N.C., on Saturday. Peter Newsham, the chief of police in Washington, anticipated a protest on Saturday would be “one of the largest” the city has seen. Events were also planned to commemorate the birthday of Breonna Taylor, an African-American medical worker whose killing by the police in March has also galvanized protests.

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.”

From coast to coast, protesters had a consistent reaction to the charges that have now been brought against three additional police officers in the death of George Floyd: It’s good news — and it’s not nearly enough. There need to be convictions. There needs to be systemic change.
