The Black Lives Matter Movement
A snapshot of the Black Lives Matter protests in Detroit, Michigan in reaction to the police-involved killings of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd. Detroit is an incredibly resilient city that’s had its fair share of struggles yet remains fuelled by the most innovative, determined and passionate people you will ever come across. Protesters I spoke with are so tired of fighting for their mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, daughters, sons and everyone else who they love. The exhaustion, fear, pain, and passion Detroiters are feeling could be felt as they chanted Breonna Taylor and George Floyd’s names on the streets of the city. I witnessed people in pain, people in love, and people whose strength and spirit inspired me to keep documenting. I also saw many quiet moments of love, tenderness and community.
