On Saturday, August 9th, Michael Brown was shot to death by police in Ferguson, MO. Yesterday, was Michael Brown’s funeral. Yesterday, would have also been Michael Brown’s first day of college at Vatterott College in St. Louis.
Yesterday also marked the day that college students from around the country staged walk outs in honor of Michael Brown and to protest police brutality, racism, and the militarization of local police forces. These are some of the pics and tweets posted on Twitter documenting the walk outs.
