LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Protesters gathered to protest against police brutality for the tenth straight night on Sunday in Lexington. The protests are in the wake of the recent deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.
Protesters went to Cheapside, then walked down Short Street to Broadway, and then up Vine Street. They stopped at the bus station for a moment of silence, and dedicated time to reflect on George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, whose pictures are on the wall.

8:42 p.m. The first stop at Sunday night's protest is Cheapside, which is where organizer April Taylor reminds "that's where your ancestors were sold."
Before the march at 8, black men supporting Black Lives Matter gathered outside the courthouse. One participant told me they read the names of every black person killed by law enforcement in the past 5-6 years. He says it took 30+ minutes to read the names @LEX18News pic.twitter.com/UQJh1YF8Q9— Conroy Delouche (@ConroyDelouche) June 8, 2020
