Frank Cunningham, 20, is a Dartmouth University junior who makes a point of staying out of situations in which he might be racially profiled and possibly come to harm. He is a member of a prominent West Palm Beach family of lawyers. His grandfather and his great uncle fought their way through the 1950s and 1960s in segregated Palm Beach County, using not fists or guns, but what they saw as better weapons: their words and the law.
“At no time have I experienced a moment such as Trayvon Martin did. I have not been in fear of my own life,” says Cunningham.
