The Rev. Calvin Skinner has given hundreds of sermons, but he says this past Sunday's felt more urgent than ever after the police killing of Anthony Thompson Jr. in Tennessee.

"The city of Knoxville has hit its boiling point," he told CNN. "The case of Anthony Thompson Jr. really solidifies this feeling that enough is enough."

Thompson, 17, was fatally shot by police when officers said they tried to disarm him inside a bathroom at Austin-East Magnet High School on April 12. He was the fifth Black student from that school to die due to gun violence this year.
