Late last night and early this morning, hundreds of people in Charlotte, N.C. protested the death of Keith Lamont Scott, who was killed by police on Sept. 20. Police had shot and killed Scott while pursuing a different person. While Scott’s family claims that he was unarmed, disabled, and holding only a book, police claim that Scott brandished a weapon upon exiting his car and that police had asked Scott repeatedly to drop his weapon. Protesters blocked Interstate 85 through the night, carrying signs that read “Black Lives Matter” and chanting, “Hands up, don’t shoot.” Seven police officers and one civilian were taken to the hospital.

This Week in Pictures: Sunday marked the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia after she appeared unstable while attending a 9/11 memorial event, citing that she felt “overheated.” President Barack Obama announced this week that by 2017, the U.S. will admit another 110,000 refugees. Of the 40,000 of those expected to be from the Near East and South Asia, many will likely be fleeing Syria’s violent and devastating civil war.

This Week in Pictures: With a little more than two months left in the U.S. presidential race, Donald Trump week took a major hit with Latino voters, as Hillary Clinton picked up the support of a prominent Republican. Brazil voted Dilma Rousseff out of the presidency and Gabon voted to keep President Ali Bongo in office— both decisions were met with protest. Extreme weather continued to burn through Indonesia and Spain, while Hurricane Hermine became the first to hit Florida since Hurricane Wilma struck 11 years ago. The weather system has broken down to a tropical storm and moved on toward Georgia and the Carolinas, leaving thousands without electricity.

This Week in History: While the Democratic Party gathered at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, scrambling to come to terms on a platform statement on Vietnam, tens of thousands of anti-war protesters took the streets by storm, battling police with the aim of pushing the presidential nomination of antiwar candidate Eugene McCarthy. Protesters chanted “the whole world is watching,” as police swung their batons and beat protesters and reporters alike. Inside the convention, fights broke out on the floor, with delegates and reporters kicked and punched. The world that night witnessed a fracturing of America’s Cold War, anti-communist sentiment, and a devastating splintering within the Democratic Party. Today, inner-party fissures threaten both Republican and Democratic traditions, as the race for the White House moves into its final three months.

MSNBC Special Report: The latest installment in The Geography of Poverty. Photographer Matt Black and writer Trymaine Lee bring us “The Heartland: Life and Loss in Steel City - Industrial Luster Tarnished in a Cutthroat Global Economy”. The recent shutdown and idling of two steel mills in Lorain, Ohio where more than a thousand laid-off workers and a devastating economic ripple — is the troubling milieu to which this onetime hub of industry is slowly coming undone. Lorain’s economic plight is not unique. It illustrates the fate of many forlorn cities and towns across the region, spanning deep into the old industrial enclaves that dot the so-called Rust Belt, a vast stretch of post-industrial towns that once turned natural resources into economic wealth. Railroads from Baltimore, Maryland to Gary, Indiana carried coal, oil, meat and livestock, providing Americans with sustenance and salience. But with advancements in automation and the expansion of the global economy and trade, many of the industrial towns that once served as the country’s economic heartbeat are now on life support.

This Week in History: On Sept. 22, 1862, after the Union victory at the Battle of Antietam—the first major Civil War battle on Union territory, and the bloodiest one-day battle in American history—President Abraham Lincoln issued the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation which presented an ultimatum to rebellious Southern states: rejoin the Union or have their slaves freed on Jan. 1, 1863. It was a pivotal move in the Civil War, shifting the focus from the preservation of the Union to the abolition of slavery. Ultimately, the Proclamation went into effect on its deadline, and is considered to have been the first push toward the abolishment of slavery.

With less than two months until Election Day, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s campaigns have focused considerable attention on Pennsylvania, a crucial swing state in the 2016 election. Luzerne County, in Pennsylvania, is a mostly Democrat metropolitan area. It’s one of seven counties in seven battleground states that could help deliver a win to either candidate. Photographer Mark Peterson Pixs shot his way through the county, speaking with locals about those issues with the highest stakes for them. “I think we all agree that we can’t see any good coming from this election,” began Kenneth Ketchum, echoing the thoughts shared by many of the other residents photographed.

This Week in History: Inspired by the “lone U.S. flag” still standing over Maryland’s Fort McHenry at daybreak after British bombardment in the War of 1812, Francis Scott Key wrote: “And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.” The line was written in a poem, later set to an English drinking tune and known as The Star Spangled Banner, on September 13, 1814. President Woodrow Wilson in 1916 declared it should be played at all official events, though it didn’t become the official American national anthem until 1931. Today, the anthem is still played at all official events, including the start of the school day and sports games. Recently, San Francisco 49ers’s Colin Kaepernick sparked controversy when he protested racial injustice by remaining seated during the anthem.

This Week in History: On Sept 9, 1976, after founding the People’s Republic of China, leading a fierce communist revolution,and working to establish the country as an international powerhouse, China’s leader, Mao Zedong, passed away. He ruled China from 1949 until his death in 1976, becoming one of the most significant and notorious communist figures of the era. While his leadership set the foundation for China's progression, Mao Zedong’s policies and tactics such as Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution cost the lives of millions of people. The legacy Zedong left behind is a controversial one and while some believe he unified China many people in and outside of China renounce his efforts.

On Thursday, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump spoke in the battleground state of Ohio, where the 98th American Legion Convention brought together thousands of veterans and their families from across the United States. Recent polls show Clinton with a lead over Trump in the state, and the former secretary of state used her speech at the American Legion Convention to continue emphasizing her foreign policy credentials while denouncing Trump’s inflammatory remarks.
