Hundreds of people turned out Saturday for a peaceful march for racial equality on June 6 in Southlake Town Square.

The event, organized by a Carroll High School group called the Progressive Activism Club, was spurred by the recent death of George Floyd while in Minneapolis police custody. The four officers involved now face criminal charges.

In Southlake, roads surrounding the square were blocked off for traffic. Some shops, including William Sonoma and the Apple Store, had boards covering their windows as a precaution after social media comments suggested trouble might occur at the event.

Police later closed East Southlake Boulevard to traffic as a crowd carried their message beyond the square with a march down the eastbound lanes.
