Reporter’s Notebook: Trayvon Martin rally in Shreveport

Sometimes a reporter doesn’t have enough words to write about the events they covered. Covering this story was one of them. 
Across the nation, cities hosted rallies in support of Trayvon Martin. Shreveport had its own on the front steps of the Caddo Parish Courthouse and this was one time I wished I was a photographer. There was so much to see and experience. What amazed me was the pull of the crowd, both black and white, toward this incident. They chanted together and so they were linked in brotherhoods and sisterhoods that only required humanity to join. So for this post, I’ll just let the pictures do the talking. No captions needed.
