"It's Possible"

While taking a slow exposure during the 24th Martin Luther King Jr. March, two friends walked into the frame and hugged...

Tamala Price hugs longtime friend John Keno Monday at Badger Street and Martin Luther King Drive during the march.

"It's possible," she said. "It really is possible."
