Incredibly Powerful Photo of Black Students at Howard University

Check out this amazing photo taken earlier today at Howard University, the historically black college in Washington, D.C. Twitter user @The_Blackness48 posted it, explaining that it wasn't so much a planned rally as a bunch of students already gathered for a meeting on freshman move-in "and we also felt we needed to respond to the Mike Brown issue."

 

Here's another powerfully sad image from earlier today, this one from Ferguson. Hope these kids grow up in a safer world.
