RALEIGH (WTVD) -- A group of activists in support of the Black Lives Matter movement marched through the North Hills area on Saturday night.
As the demonstration began, groups brought traffic along parts of Six Forks Road to a standstill before moving on to the popular North Hills shopping center.
"We've been saying their names for 42 days straights," one of the leaders of the march said.
Demonstrators held signs that read "BLM", "Black Trans Lives Matter", "Love thy neighbor!"
The march ended at the State Employees' Credit Union around 9 p.m. where demonstrators debriefed.
A police presence was nearby the scene of the demonstration but did not interfere with the group.
Last month, many North Hills businesses were looted or damaged shortly after George Floyd protests in downtown Raleigh turned violent.
A week before, Raleigh police arrested at least 20 demonstrators during a similar demonstration that blocked traffic along Capital Boulevard in downtown Raleigh.
