Description
A black-and-white photograph taken at a Black Lives Matter rally in Baltimore, Maryland. A group of people walk down a city street towards the photographer. At center is Pastor Westley West, wearing a black shirt, gray jacket with black pocket square, and jeans, holding a bullhorn in his left hand and walking with his arms raised in the "hands up, don't shoot" position. His shirt reads: "#NoJusticeNoPeace / #JusticeForFreddie / @Pastor_West." Next to West is a boy walking with his hands up. Behind West and the boy are other members of the march, many with hands up. The sky is overcast.
