Atlanta (CNN) – Black Lives Matter protesters interrupted Hillary Clinton on Friday while she was speaking at a historically black university here.

The protesters began chanting “black lives matter” a few minutes into her speech.

At first, the former secretary of state acknowledged them: “Yes they do and I’m gonna talk a lot about that in a minute,” she said.

She then tried ignoring the protesters, shouting her remarks over the chants.

“I have some issues to discuss and proposals to make if our friends will allow me to do it. They may actually find them to their liking,” Clinton said, while continuing to speak over the disruption, one of the loudest she had faced on the campaign trail.
