Protesters in downtown Cincinnati Saturday

After a weekend of protests and more than two hundred arrests, Cincinnati is extending a curfew to at least Monday night. Local protests, like so many across the nation, were sparked by the Minneapolis police killing of George Floyd. The demonstrations, which began peacefully in the early hours, turned to vandalism in some areas of the city throughout several nights.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the protests are Cincinnati Enquirer Reporter Briana Rice; WVXU Social Media Coordinator Ronny Salerno; Protest Organizer Harold "Dj HD" Douglas; Protester Keizayla Fambro;Cincinnati City Councilmember David Mann; and African American ChamberPresident and CEO Eric Kearney.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
