The protesters in Taos laid down at an intersection blocking two major highways in the center of Taos for 15 minutes. Almost all of the protesters who were wearing masks for the Virus were Caucasian, Hispanic or Native American. From the signs, it was clear that they were passionately supporting the "Black Lives Matter" movement. These protests were all the more compelling since the images represent the intersection of two world-changing events in the middle of a small town in NM. I was wondering how the little girl with the mask perceived these events and the potential for changing her life.
