People of all races came together to support the Black Lives Matter movement.

"It was just such a wonderful feeling of unity," Smith said. "People of all colors, all ages, different backgrounds, who want to support justice for all humanity and it was empowering," he added.

Sahara says she’s been marching for a week. "Being here every day for a week, I get that it’s not just us that are angry and tired. Most of the people I march with are caucasian and that’s powerful," she said.

Another goal of the march was to get people registered to vote and take part in the upcoming election.
