Hundreds of people gathered at the Connie Morella Library in Bethesda on Tuesday, June 2, to protest police brutality and systemic racism.

The rally, organized by Walt Whitman High School students, was held in response to the death George Floyd, a black man who was killed last week in police custody. Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis police offer who pinned Floyd to the ground with his knee, has been charged with second-degree murder. Three police officers who witnessed the killing were charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder.


Caroline Taylor, who attended Tuesday’s Black Lives Matter protest in Bethesda with her daughter, a Poolesville High School graduate, shared these photos with Montgomery Magazine.
