George Floyd Demonstration in Los Angeles by Kemal Cilengir

Demonstrations in Los Angeles followed the recent passing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota. George Floyd had been confronted and arrested on suspicion of trying to cash a fake check. His arrest and final moments of life were recorded on a mobile device and shared throughout social media. Black Lives Matter activists assembled a rally in front of the Hall of Justice building on Temple St. in Downtown Los Angeles. In the past 48 hours, 2 individuals of color were slain by police in L.A county. Contributing photographer Kemal Cilengir shares with us a photo essay from yesterdays rally. - Joshua Zamudio
