NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Students at Fisk University have held a protest that blocked traffic in downtown Nashville Wednesday afternoon to express their disagreement with Donald Trump being elected president.

Student Justin Jones, who helped organize the protest, told The Tennessean ( that students decided to protest Trump's election due to "values of discrimination, inequality and exclusion he has championed."

The group marched past the Capitol and through Lower Broadway before heading back to Fisk.

Police used rolling roadblocks to redirect traffic and at times worked with demonstrators so that some cars could pass, but there were no major interactions.
