Yesterday was freshman move-in/orientation day at Howard University in Washington D.C. Gathered for freshman orientation, students at the historically black college posed for a power picture in response to the escalating racial tensions in Ferguson, Missouri.The “Hands up, don’t shoot” pic is a direct response to police killing unarmed teenager Mike Brown, who, according to an account, was walking away from a police car when he was fired upon.
The Instagram pic reads: “Howard University takes a stand for justice! #BisonNation #DontShoot #HU,” the Instagram post says as hundreds of students put their hands in the air.
This was the scene in Ferguson last night, in case you missed it.
Once again, this was the scene in Ferguson tonight. Just so hard to believe this is even America https://t.co/ba72RNxCWN
