Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of people gathered tonight in Public Square to protest the recent murders of Alton Brown and Philando Castile in other American cities. The event, which was organized before Thursday night’s killing of five Dallas police officers, continued on to Broadway and ended near the police headquarters in the rain.
Tony Gonzalez of Nashville Public Radio followed along with the protestors.
