LOUISVILLE, Ky. — After 101 days of demanding justice for Breonna Taylor, hundreds of protesters converged outside Churchill Downs Saturday evening during the 146th Kentucky Derby, which ran without spectators due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Local activists, church leaders, demonstrators with social justice organization Until Freedom and members of the group the Not F***ing Around Coalition gathered outside the racetrack fences, chanting “Say her name: Breonna Taylor.” The group called for justice for the shooting death of Taylor during a police raid and for the Derby to be canceled.

Several police officers stood inside the fence.
