We've seen streets packed with protesters demanding change, but Friday night a generation we've not yet heard from spoke up.

Dozens of children, and their parents, packed Jacobson Park in Lexington to protest the racial injustice in the world.

"I want to say they need to stop killing black people, and it's not good to keep killing black people."

"I just wanted my voice to be heard, and I'm tired of being scared my brother isn't going to come home one day."

Those are some of the things children told WKYT's Nick Oliver.

Each child made a sign, and leaders there helped them understand what's happening in the world.
