Description
A digital, black-and-white image of an unidentified protester holding a sign at a Black Lives Matter protest organized by The People's Uprising in Atlanta, Georgia, following the decision by the Kentucky grand jury that one officer would be charged in the Breonna Taylor case for shooting into a neighboring apartment, and that there would be no charges for any officers directly related to Taylor's death. The image depicts a close-up of the protester’s torso and the small sign is held in front of them just below chest level. They are wearing a medium tone sweatshirt with front pockets and with centered dark text printed over the chest that reads [TRAYVON]. The protester has their proper left hand in their sweatshirt pocket and is cradling the bottom of their sign with their proper right hand. The protest sign is plain white with large, black marker text on the front that reads [BREONNA / TAYLOR’S / LIFE MATTERED.]. In the background on the left, is the sidewalk of a city street. In the background on the right, are a partially visible group of protesters.
