Over the course of 11 days, as outrage grew over the death of George Floyd and many others whose names were shouted along with his, many felt compelled to join the movement. Protesters came to downtown Columbus, Ohio, to demand action and stop police brutality and discrimination they say has gone on unchecked for way too long. There had been protests before, but not like this.
Then the protests got more violent, and the focus turned to tear gas and broken windows. Lost in the chaos was the message so many were desperately trying to shout over all the noise: Something has to change.
