ABOUT THIS STORY:

There was so much angry rhetoric on social media in the weeks and days leading up to this protest. There were death threats against the organizers and many people posted hateful comments online, criticizing the Black Lives movement and methods. But, in the end, the march down Snelling Avenue from a St. Paul park to the state fair grounds in Falcon Heights was completely peaceful.

I filed this story for Reuters on my iPhone while I walked alongside the protestors.
