    Editorial staff make story image decisions based on a number of factors, including the suitability and availability of images.

    The image used for this post is, as you note, from a Howard U. graduation ceremony, with additional details provided in the image description (viewable as a hover, which you may have seen). The caption of the photo doesn't repeat the information provided in the hover, but it does note that graduations generally are a time of excitement and celebration -- the inference being that some are more fully celebratory than others.

    Since this is a blog, with the stories we post providing commentary on the news, not all the images associated with a story will be closely tied to the events reported in the story itself. Sometimes the featured image will provide contrast or counterpoint in order to emphasize the commentary being made in the story itself.

    If I haven't addressed your concerns fully, feel free to inquire further. Thanks for asking.
