Rev. Isreal Grant looks at a statue of attacking dogs at Kelly Ingram Park in Birmingham, Ala., Friday, Sept. 6, 2013. When he was 15, Grant boarded an overcrowded bus and, finding no place at the back, sat down beside an elderly white woman. He was arrested and jailed overnight, without even being given a chance to call his parents. "My father found me the next morning," Grant recalls. "They had been checking all the funeral homes and all the police stations. My father cried like a baby." Because of his good grades and lack of a record, the judge agreed to dismiss the charges.
