Hundreds march in Ann Arbor to protest police brutality

Ann Arbor, Mich. — Hundreds of people marched through the streets of downtown Ann Arbor to protest police brutality and the deaths of black people at the hands of officers.

The Ann Arbor News reports marchers gathered Wednesday evening at the University of Michigan and chants carried on for about three hours. The crowd eventually made its way through downtown streets while members of the Ann Arbor Police Department blocked off traffic.

Along the way, a moment of silence was held to honor those killed by police as well as officers slain in Dallas during a recent protest.

Protest co-organizer Dianté Harris says those involved “want to create another platform for black people to come out and let people hear their voices.”
