Last night, as ABC ran an interview with the man who shot and killed 18-year-old Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri this August, hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets across the United States, protesting the grand jury decision not to indict officer Darren Wilson in investigation of the shooting.

All told, 42 states had solidarity protests in honor of Mike Brown, with some protests flooding into major city arteries as travelers began their journeys toward their Thanksgiving destinations. Here’s a map of where the protests happened:
