Over 200 protesters made their way to the square in Barren County on Tuesday to protest about the recent deaths of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd. Protesters laid on the ground for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, to symbolize the amount of time a knee was in the neck of Floyd.

"I think that we just need to have hope and continue to work in our communities, and build communities and do good work," said LaToya Drake.

"This is all about all black lives and we are wanting to be heard and hopefully justice will be served," said event organizer, Sharmisha Childress.

"We should no longer be in a supremacist type of government when we are all equal. Supremacy has ruled long enough it's about equality," said event participant.

"I don't think it's right what they're doing to black people. Literally that person was on the ground saying I can't breathe and they killed him for no reason. Innocent black people nowadays are being killed for no reason," said event participant.
