Description
A black-and-white digital photograph by Devin Allen of a group of unidentified men and an unidentified child protesting in Baltimore, Maryland. A child wearing a short-sleeved striped polo shirt stands in the left foreground holding a sign with printed text reading "WE ARE / ALL / TRAYVON / MARTIN! / Justice-4-Trayvon.org / Baltimore & Maryland LOC / Call: 443-469-7265". A photograph of Martin is printed in the upper right corner of the sign. A man standing at the right side of the frame wears a light-colored t-shirt and a kufi, and speaks into a corded microphone. A man behind him wears a black t-shirt with an American flag and the text "BLACK LIVES / MATTER" printed on it. He holds one side of a large banner that is behind the man speaking and partially out of frame. Other protesters out of focus in the background hold signs for the People's Power Assembly with the organization's phone number.
