Before the protest started, a woman was seen painting the sidewalks with chalk.
The organizers encouraged protesters to also attend the Fairborn Board of Education meeting at Fairborn High School.
A teacher and assistant football coach was placed on administrative leave earlier due to an investigation into comments posted on social media recently.

The teacher reportedly responded to a Twitter post stating that Pres. Donald Trump “called black people ‘thugs’” by tweeting back, “Just because he speaks the truth you all can’t stand it. Take your blinders off.”
