Photos from the weekend: Protests continue across US

Armed with their signs, strengthened by their voices, protestors gathered this past weekend in cities across the United States and the world to lament the Black lives lost at the hands of police and to call for a reckoning in the criminal justice system.

The Miami Hurricane staff captured photos at protests in three very different places: Decatur, Georgia, an Atlanta suburb, Miami and Little Rock, Arkansas.
