Students held a silent protest outside Encinal High School on Wednesday afternoon, one of several people have staged around the Bay Area and across the country following police killings of unarmed black men in New York and Ferguson, Mo. Alamedans held a protest at the city's tree lighting ceremony this past Saturday, and another is scheduled for 1 p.m. Sunday on the steps of City Hall. Jane Sullwold snapped this photo at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday and passed it along to The Alamedan.
