Activists stood beside the family of Quawan "Bobby" Charles as the sun set Wednesday over Louisiana's Iberia Parish Courthouse, which also is home to the law enforcement agency investigating the death of the Black 15-year-old.

Speaking to a crowd of about 100 protesters, the group demanded justice and accountability in a case that's gaining national attention because of a graphic photo shared by Bobby's family that's eerily similar to a 1955 image of lynched Black teenager Emmett Till.

"It's funny that we have to come to the steps of the courthouse to find justice because justice for 400 years hasn't found us," said Jamal Taylor, a founding member of The Village and Stand Black, and who is also involved in the Lafayette branch of the NAACP.

"It's funny today that we have to come here and demand that people be arrested for the brutal murder of a young man who was 15 years old. Folks, peace demands justice."
