Moment of Silence tonight for Mike Brown and Ferguson, Mo. at Meridian Hill Park

The recent events in Ferguson, Mo., where police officers shot an unarmed young man, followed by unrest and protests, has some local reactions as well. Today a large group of Howard University students took a picture of themselves with their hands up inside Burr Gymnasium as a show of solidarity. The photo happened during the midst of freshman move-in day.

And tonight, some folks have organized a moment of silence for Brown at Meridian Hill/Malcolm X Park starting at 7pm. 1,800 people have said they're going so far, so there may be a big crowd.
