Description
A black-and-white digital photograph by Devin Allen of an unidentified Black Lives Matter protestor in Baltimore, Maryland. The man sits cross-legged on the sidewalk with his right hand resting below his chin. The top of his face and head are out of frame. In his left hand he holds the handle of a protest sign that lays on the sidewalk to his left. The sign has the words "BLACK / LIVES / MATTER" printed in black text and repeated once. The man wears a black t-shirt with a screen-printed image that reads "KNOW YOUR / RIGHTS / COP WATCH / PEOPLE'S POWER / ASSEMBLY". A crowd of people with raised fists is printed between the lines of the text "RIGHTS" and "COP WATCH."
