The Minnesota Freedom Fighters, a group of Black men, are at the scene to protest but are also determined to keep things peaceful.

The group was formed as an armed patrol during unrest last year following the death of George Floyd.

As Minneapolis sits on edge, the Freedom Fighters are trying to protect the neighborhoods where demonstrations occur, while still calling for justice.
