Protests decrying police violence continued Sunday in Boston and other cities and towns across the region following the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and other Black Americans at the hands of law enforcement.
In Boston, a rally was held outside the Boston Public Library, and a prayer, scripture, and song event took place on Boston Common.
Protests were also held in Quincy, Somerville, Manchester-by-the-Sea, Westford, Concord, and Lexington.
Here are photos and social media posts from Sunday’s events.

Beautiful demonstration in my city of Framingham, Massachusetts to combat and bring awareness to racial injustice. Our mayor is the person right in front of us. A black woman in power is something beautiful and inspiring to see pic.twitter.com/nF5SBgsCE8

Went to the BLM Vigil & Rally at Wollaston Beach this afternoon with @Pherric and @Little_Fenn. Hard to see the scale in this video since I was at the low elevation but I’m so happy to see people still speaking up and hosting events! Keep fighting folks! #BlackLivesMatter #Quincy pic.twitter.com/oFTtV1uEaf
