'I'm black and I'm proud' -kids march in protests

The faces of protest have sometimes been surprisingly small….

(EMILY, 5, READS SIGN):

“Black… Lives… Matter….”

Kids marching alongside parents has the littlest among us making history.

(YOUNG CHILD, NICO, SAYING):

“I’m black and I’m proud. They’re all here to support me.”

Nico joined his family for a peaceful protest in Brooklyn, New York, Tuesday – and five-year-old Emily told Reuters why she was there with her family, too.

(EMILY, SAYING):

“The police are shooting the brown people.”

(REUTERS REPORTER, SAYING):

“What can we do to make sure that that stops?”

(EMILY, SAYING):

“Take their guns away and give them a new job.”

Added eight-year-old Maddie:

“I wish that everything was fair right now, but they're not, sadly."
