Johnetta Elzie went to Ferguson the afternoon Michael Brown was shot and killed.

“It moved us to tears,” the 25-year-old college student said. “Between hearing the first-hand accounts and seeing his blood on the streets still. You could feel that his blood was screaming out from the pavement.” 

Young leaders in Ferguson have amplified that cry, rallying on social media and participating in protests.
