Hundreds of people gathered together in solidarity in pursuit of one goal--justice.

Organizers planned the March on Knox for 5 p.m. saying, "We want peace. We want justice." Similar protests have broken out across the country, sparked by the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Marquez Arbery.

But one protester told WVLT News, "It's bigger than these three names," adding that racial inequality remains an issue, though the police officers involved in Floyd's death have been charged.

Vols football coach Jeremy Pruitt attended the march along with some players.

The event kicked off at 5 p.m. and quickly dispersed at around 7 p.m.
