Friday marked the seventh straight day of daily Black Lives Matter demonstrations in DeKalb County spurred by the death of George Floyd, a black man, while in the custody of Derek Chauvin, a white Minneapolis police officer.
The march on Friday began in Hopkins Park, weaved on Joanne Lane, First Street and Sycamore Road.
At times, songs were played on someone’s phone and held up to the loud speaker.
The voice of Sam Cooke as the lyrics to the 1963 Civil Rights-era classic “A change is gonna come” echoed from someone’s phone held up to the loud speaker as the crowd marched in silence, fists up in the air, to the intersection of Hillcrest and Sycamore Road Friday evening.
