The right-wing "Free Speech Rally" in Boston was outnumbered by tens of thousands of anti-racism protesters who hit the streets of the US city. There had been fears of violence just a week after clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Instead, a small crowd at the rally was met by up to 30,000 counter-protesters, with many wearing stickers of #HeatherHeyer. She died last week when a car was driven into a crowd of people protesting at a far-right rally in Charlottesville.

Former President @barackobama shared these words and this photograph by @petesouza in a tweet that has become the most liked ever on Twitter. He shared it after the attack on Charlottesville, Virginia. His words were from a passage from Mr Mandela’s autobiography, The Long Walk to Freedom. The full quote reads, “No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” More than 3 million people have liked the image. #quoteoftheday #charlottesville #tolerance #obama #quote #instaquote #mandela #nelsonmandela #thelongwalktofreedom #twitter #bbcnews

A Confederate statue, which had stood for almost 100 years, is pulled down by protesters in Durham, North Carolina. A crowd cheered as the statue - a tribute to troops who fought on the pro-slavery side of the American Civil War - was destroyed.

It comes just days after violence at far-right protests in Charlottesville, Virginia against the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. A car was rammed into a group of people demonstrating against a white supremacist rally in the city, killing Heather Heyer.

Flowers lie next to a picture of 32-year-old Heather Heyer at a makeshift memorial in Charlottesville, Virginia. Heather was killed after a car rammed into a group of people protesting against a white supremacist rally in the city on Saturday. Heather's last post on social media said," If you're not outraged, you're not listening." Friends and fellow activists have now had those words printed on t-shirts commemorating what she stood for. Her heartbroken mother said, "Heather was about stopping hatred." Nineteen people were also injured in the incident which happened at the end of a "Unite the Right" march.
