DENVER (AP) – Demonstrators protesting the death of a man in a Denver jail have briefly taken over the stage at the city’s Martin Luther King Day rally.
The protesters then yielded the stage. Mayor Michael Hancock later addressed the crowd.
The rally in downtown Denver culminated the city’s annual “Marade” or march and parade to honor the civil rights leader.
Some people in the march carried signs saying, “Black Lives Matter.” Others carried photos of King.
