Black Lives Matter protesters gathered daily from June 2 to 7 in front of Huntsville’s Town Hall to peacefully spread an anti-racism message.
The protests began with a handful of people on the first day, gathering steam through word of mouth and social media until there were dozens during the hour-long protest on Sunday, June 7.
Some passing motorists honked or waved in support; others simply read the signs. Some ignored them altogether, and the few who shook their heads, gave a thumbs-down, or shouted disagreement proved why the movement is needed.
