A church in Louisville, Kentucky, opened its doors and offered safe haven to protesters who would otherwise be arrested after a police curfew began.
The First Unitarian Church of Louisville posted a photograph of protesters from the first night of the riots in the city, but social media posts showed that they were doing the same on Thursday, the second night of the protests.
In one expletive-ridden video reportedly from the church grounds, white people are being berated and exhorted to leave.
"White people have just been threatened with assault and kicked out of the church sanctuary grounds. Almost all press were demanded to leave as well," said the Twitter user who posted the video.
Another video shows an interview with a member of the church who explains that the purpose of the sanctuary is to "provide a safe space of love and compassion in the service of justice."
