Protesters march in Illinois town that once expelled black residents

Protesters rally against the death in Minneapolis police custody of George Floyd in Anna, Illinois. Before sundown, around 150 protesters marched down the main street in Anna, past Bob's Tavern, Oasis of Grace Church, Douglas Skating Rink and Casey's General Store holding homemade signs and chanting "black lives matter."

Joe Plemon, 73, an elder at the First Evangelical Presbyterian Church, said he had prepared several Bible passages - laments - to read at the protest. "We have been challenged within my own denomination, and I know this is going on at other churches as well, to say, 'Let's not just wink at this, let's step up, let's admit the things that we're ashamed of and let's confess the places where we've sinned.'"

One of the mostly young organizers was 18-year-old Jenna Gomez (pictured) from nearby Cobden, Illinois, who said she is used to seeing Confederate flags displayed by area businesses. Gomez had thought maybe a handful of people would show up to the event when she and some others started a group chat about it.

"They haven't thought about the script being flipped. But it's about to be." REUTERS/Brian Munoz
