CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A crowd of demonstrators gathered in Clarksville to protest police brutality.

The crowd marched from Austin Pea Fortera Stadium to the Montgomery County Courthouse. The group wanted to make their voices were heard without the violence and destruction that's been seen in Nashville and across the country.

About 200 people participated and listened to several speakers, who talked about policy change as well as the issues African Americans face today.

Organizers made it very clear that they expected the rally to remain peaceful, and that they wanted to take action without violence.
