A dramatic photo of hundreds of Howard University students with their hands up, protesting the shooting of an unarmed man by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, went viral after it was posted on Instagram and passed around on social media this week.
The photo was first posted on Instagram by Khalil Saadiq, who helped organize the gathering. (WashingtonPost.com)
