"I'm on my way to Freedom Land," "We shall not be moved" and "We'll walk hand in hand" were among the protest hymns that echoed through the halls of the Legislature Monday.

Protesters say that the struggle is no longer about race; it's about the treatment of the most vulnerable people in our state. —Will Huntsberry
