People all over the country took to the streets on Monday to try and "reclaim" the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. on the holiday honoring the civil rights icon.
Advocacy group Ferguson Action, which was formed after the Michael Brown shooting to fight police violence, put out a call on its website for supporters to take to the streets on MLK Day.
Crowds gathered around the country, including in New York City.
Elsewhere around the nation, people came together to remember Dr. King and call for racial and economic justice.
Protesters have been taking to the streets in the months following the August shooting of Brown, an unarmed black teenager, by white police officer Darren Wilson. A grand jury declined to indict Wilson in the case.
