Several hundred people gathered in Friendswood on June 6 for a Black Lives Matter march in honor of George Floyd.

"I am astounded by the amount of people that showed up. I had minimum expectations," protester Tavon Jackson said. "I greatly appreciate having so many people who look like me and so many who don't here. They want to be a part of something great. They want to be a part of the revolution."

The protesters marched down S. Friendswood Drive to Friendswood City Hall. At City Hall, protestors knelt for 8 minutes and 56 seconds. Some protestors shared personal accounts of experiencing racism and thanked the crowd for its stand.
