About 150 teenagers, and children as young as five, participated in their first-ever peace march in north Minneapolis Wednesday.
The young demonstrators, sweating in the day's heat, carried colorful signs that read Black Minds Matter, Equal Rights For All and Vote for My Future. Many of them wore red tape in the form of an X on the backs of their small shirts, so passing drivers could more easily see them.
The event was part of a national day of social action organized by the Children's Defense Fund.
