Huge protests have taken place in towns and cities all across the UK this month about racism.

They started after the death of a man called George Floyd, who was stopped and pinned down by police in the US city of Minneapolis.

People in the UK, and other parts of the world, have taken to the streets to reject prejudice while telling their own personal stories.
