Of the more than 170 shows in this year's KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival, several are related to the Black Lives Matter movement.
One of them is a production from ROC Freedom Riders.
The group was formed in June, after the May 25 death of George Floyd in the custody of Minneapolis police.
That was before the public knew about an incident -- one that would be compared to Floyd's death -- that had happened in Rochester months earlier. In March, police officers restrained Daniel Prude; he died a week later from the injuries he suffered.
