In demonstrations against police brutality and systemic racism that have raged following the police killing of George Floyd, protesters often take a solemn knee. They observe mournful moments of silence. They break into call-and-response. Others build altars, paint murals and pay homage to the victims of police brutality by calling out their names in a litany. In many ways, the protests embody familiar elements of traditional faith, and are often led by young people who find a sense of purpose, ritual and community on the streets.
