It’s been a busy weekend of Black Lives Matter-led protests, after the fatal police-involved shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

Other marches have been more triumphant, including Sunday night’s march in Los Angeles, where Black Lives Matter protestors marched in Inglewood, and shut down a highway.
