Rally held for biracial boy who was nearly hanged by teens

A chorus of “We Shall Overcome” rises from a gathering against racism in Broad Street Park in Claremont, N.H., Tuesday, Sept. 12, 2017. The demonstration was inspired by violence last month against an 8-year-old biracial boy that occurred while he played with a group of teenagers outside his home. The Valley News via AP James M.
