Protesters gathered for an event billed as “Birth of a Revolution” on Sunday evening at MU’s Francis Quadrangle. The event featured several speakers and a voter registration table. Participants were handed a flyer with a list of demands related to policing, a call to protect and fund black institutions, and the names and numbers of state and local elected officials. After hearing from speakers, those assembled marched north on Eighth Street to the amphitheater of the Boone County Courthouse while engaging in call and response chants. At the courthouse, the event featured several additional speakers.
