Ella Baker, 1964 but as relevant today with 'stand your ground' bs and the dunn trial. When a child murderer gets a courtesy call before getting arrested. one blogger was saying her 10 year old son didn't want to (was too scared to*) wear his hoodie out anymore because someone might feel threatened by him. so we make laws to protect old bigots and terrify children. makes sense

Mugshots of Freedom Riders, Jackson Mississippi, 1961. I love their faces and the range of emotions. All the tiny and not so tiny smiles, as if they know something. I wonder if they knew they'd win.
