(CBS DETROIT) – In Kalamazoo, some protests were lead in silence, while others were more vocal.

In Marshall, community members say the protest was important for this small predominately white town to support the movement.

Others say they believe “All Lives Matter” and some even carried weapons to send a message to those who they say, “want to destroy property.”
