Students, faculty and a high school friend of Floyd's lend their perspectives on the national protests against racial injustice that are sweeping the country.
The reason these protests keep happening should be easy enough to grasp: the very people the movement is speaking to are simply not listening to the message.
With 267 attendees, topics of discussion included the history of the Black Lives Matter movement and racial injustice following the recent protests over the death of George Floyd.
One of many similar demonstrations taking place across the country escalated when demonstrators began burning American flags outside the Arlington Police Department Main Station.
The curfews are in place for several days and effective immediately. The Fort Worth curfew is citywide, while only parts of Dallas are under curfew.
The announcement comes a day after Abbott activated the Texas National Guard to assist law enforcement and deployed state resources to the cities of Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and Austin.
Protesters took the streets of downtown Dallas in a justice caravan for Floyd and Atatiana Jefferson, who was shot and killed in her home on Oct. 12, 2019, by a former Fort Worth police officer.
Throughout the week, protesters around the country rallied in solidarity with Floyd’s family and in protest against police brutality and racism.
