Voices from the Black Lives Matter protest in Fort Bragg

A diverse, all-ages crowd led by high school students gathered in front of Town Hall in Fort Bragg on Tuesday afternoon to protest the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers last week. Many spoke eloquently about the history of racial injustice in the United States. The crowd of hundreds of mask-wearing people chanted, waved signs and asked passers-by to honk in agreement. Parts one and two give a flavor of the variety of persepectives at the rally.
