2013 was the Year of Unrest, and INDY photographers captured the tension of the moment. Moral Monday protesters demonstrated against the policies of Gov. Pat McCrory and Republican lawmakers; students and teachers rallied against cuts to education; and this month, activists demanded answers from Durham police about the death of 17-year-old Jesus Huerta, who allegedly committed suicide while in the back of a police car.
That said, there were uplifting moments as well: parades and celebrations, baseball games and doughnut-eating road racers.
Whatever 2014 holds, we'll be there, day by day, to document it, to raise questions and make sense of what unfolds. —Lisa Sorg
