Clashes between police and protesters across the U.S.
It's been one week since George Floyd died under the knee of former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin. Since that time protests have spread to nearly every state in the U.S. Many are calling for an end to police violence and the killing of unarmed Black men by White officers.
