The N.Y.C. "Rock a Crown" Protest to Bring Our Nigerian Sisters Home

CNN is reporting demonstrations around the world of protesters demanding pressure be put on the Nigerian government, to bring back more than 200 girls who were abducted from their boarding school. Protesters have taken to the streets carrying posters reading #BringBackOurGirls. The campaign began on Twitter following the mass abduction. Here is a slide show of a protest that happened over the weekend in New York City. Protesters came out to "Rock a Crown" (a.k.a. wearing a head wrap) in support of the abducted girls.
