BALTIMORE — Demonstrators gathered for more protests in Baltimore on Sunday.

It was a silent protest in front of the Kappa Alpha Psi Youth and Community Center, but it was a symbolic one.

Protesters were on their knees because they wanted to share some of the pain and discomfort George Floyd felt.

''Black people in America have had their knee on the head for many years, we wanted to participate and we thought this was the best way for us to be silent and still for 8 minutes and 46 seconds to reflect and to feel some of that pain,'' said protester, Charles Smith.

The historically black national fraternity hopes that people come together to not only talk about the issue but learn from it as well.
