When George Floyd’s life was unnecessarily and brutally snuffed out by Minneapolis law enforcement on May 25, it was yet another final straw…and that straw was set ablaze around the globe. I arrived at the Barclays Center protest on Brooklyn (the first of many) early, raised my fist, my voice and my lens while the proceedings were relatively peaceful. On this warm spring day, a beautiful melting pot of humanity stood up for each other against the virus of racial injustice. Even though most were wearing masks to protect themselves from Covid-19, their souls shone brightly through their eyes.
