The Grey's Anatomy star joined thousands of protestors in peaceful protests in St. Louis.

Grey's Anatomy actor Jesse Williams was on the front lines of the Ferguson October demonstrations over the weekend.

Williams, one of the few celebrities to participate in the weekend of peaceful protests, used his Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr pages to document the events that began Friday and is scheduled to continue until Monday. The candidness of his posts was insightful, even helping to dispel a rumor that clashes between protestors and police had taken place.

Cornel West and Talib Kweli were also present.
