Jelani Gibson had never slept on the street before visiting the Occupy Wall Street movement in Lower Manhattan’s Liberty Plaza. But when his grandmother mentioned wanting to travel from Pontiac, Michigan, to New York City to see the growing protests firsthand, he decided he couldn’t miss it.

So when I heard about [the Occupy Wall Street protests], I’m like ‘Oh wow. Grandma’s going so maybe I can just ask her to take me with her and she did.’”
