Black Lives Matter protest in Manlius

Hundreds of people gathered — wearing face masks and carrying signs — at the Swan Pond to hear FM Students for BLM and their supporters speak about the need for racial justice and police reform. The crowd also marched through the village of Manlius and held a moment of silence for George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man who died May 25 after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes.
