She fed extra food from her pantry to needy neighborhood kids. Then things got much bigger.

Meet Cher Coner. She decided one day to help kids in Detroit who were out of school for the summer, which at first sounds great, right? I mean, kids … summer … they go together.

But it also means these kids lacked the meals that school provides when it's in session. It happens in too many cities across the country every time school is out, and it's one of those hidden problems that a lot of people are not aware of.

In their neighborhood, they turned it into something that reached much further than anybody had ever imagined.

As she says, "It's bigger than a lunch program. Much, much bigger."

Fair warning: you might just get a little teary-eyed. I know I did.

Vauhxx Booker, a civil rights activist from Bloomington, Indiana, claims that a group of white men threatened to lynch him during an altercation on July 4 near Lake Monroe, but he was saved by onlookers who intervened.

Video taken during the incident shows he was held down by a group of men who pinned him to a tree in a wooded area. Booker says that while he was being held down, the men threatened to break his arms, repeatedly said "get a noose," and told his friends to leave the area.

The men later let him go after being confronted by onlookers who gathered at the scene.

The incident began, according to Booker, when he and his friends were making their way to the lake to see the lunar eclipse when a white man on an ATV told them they were trespassing. When Booker and his friends continued to walk to the lake, the man on the ATV and his friends allegedly shouted "white power" at them, which is when things turned violent.
