The People Behind the VOICES

BLACK LIVES MATTER portraits of some of the people at Marcus-David Peters Circle since June 2020


People come.

They take selfies to show that they witnessed this moment in history.

They bring flowers or light candles to place at the memorials to victims of police brutality.

They write words of justice and equality and they pray for peace and healing.

They make music in tune with the celebration of solidarity present in this space.

They bring their children to teach them about the roots of the struggles of people of color in America.

They occupy – the space-keepers, the spokespersons, the caretakers; those who are present every day dedicated to keeping the protest alive and to make manifest the hope that "this time it's different."
