SATURDAY: Rochester Black Lives Matter protest

We're following today's march and rally on social media. The event started at 2 p.m. at Martin Luther King Jr. Park (formerly East Park) and marched to Mayo Park, site of the Down by the Riverside concerts behind Mayo Civic Center. Ten speakers are scheduled, and so is an 8 minute, 46 second moment of silence for George Floyd, who was killed by a police officer on Memorial Day, May 25. Then marchers return to MLK Park.
