Staff photographer and Jordan High School student Amil Magnum captured a student-organized “peaceful protest” at Jordan High School on Sept. 28, 2016, to call attention to events going on between police and people of color. The protest lasted from 8:30 to 8:50 before classes started. Teachers and administrators were supportive of the event.
