On September 17, 2011, scores of protesters descended on Liberty Plaza in Lower Manhattan to rally against corporate America through a movement called Occupy Wall Street. Since then, rallies have been organized, support has been acquired, and crowds have grown.

But a portion of America is still looking for representation among the thousands. Occupy The Hood, a movement led by a man named Malik, hopes to attract minorities across America to participate in the Occupy Wall Street protests that have recently gained huge momentum.

With a staggering unemployment rate holding steady at 16.1 percent among blacks, and an 11.3 percent unemployment rate among Latinos in the United States, Occupy The Hood hopes to create awareness regarding a pressing question: Why aren’t more people of color representing, and contributing, to the growing movement?
