These pictures represent college students in Memphis, Tennessee demonstrating a standard of humanity during a climate of frustration in society.  This group protested on a bridge and I-40, a major interstate in the United States.  The protest was held days after Alton Sterling (Baton Rouge, Louisiana) and Philando Castile (St. Paul, Minnesota) were killed by police officers.  The recent deaths are part of a larger concern of black people feeling like their lives do not matter.  It is positive to see young people believing in a cause and taking a stand.  Making a difference can be done peacefully; there is opportunity for development and change.
