GREENSBORO, N.C. -- At least 50 people are expected to gather outside the International Civil Rights Museum Saturday for a march against recent police shootings.

Organizers stress that the "Peaceful but Real" march will be peaceful in the wake of Thursday's ambush on Dallas police officers.

The protest is mainly being organized by college students and will begin at the Civil Rights Museum and stop at the jail.

Greensboro police say they will have extra officers out to keep protesters safe and to keep traffic moving.

Officers will be both on foot and on bikes.

The march is in response to the police shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile this week.

Both police and organizers say they want the march to go smoothly.
