Denver protests over the death of African American George Floyd at the hands of a white Minneapolis police officer entered a third day Saturday, May 30, 2020.

A Denver jury recently awarded $14 million to protesters who took to the streets after Minneapolis police murdered George Floyd.

Browne-Marshall teaches a course on Race and the Law at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York.
