Members of the Cornell community rallied together on Ho Plaza Wednesday evening in response to the shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown by police officers last month in Ferguson, Missouri.

Black Students United — with support from student groups Islamic Alliance for Justice and Students for Justice in Palestine, as well as Cornell faculty members — organized and led the “Rally on Ferguson,” more than a month after Brown was killed.
