Leshia Evans the Baton Rouge protester with the flowing dress

An iconic photo from the Baton Rouge protest (Black lives matter) has started to appear all over the internet. The photo shows an incredibly calm young woman in front of 2 police officers that seems prepared to war.

A powerful image that illustrates America’s racial fault lines. Despite a long history of battles for Afro-American civil rights, it seems that the society is still split and divided.

The Baton Rouge iconic photo portrays Leshia Evans, a 28 years old nurse from New York.

The photographer Jonathan Bachman reported to the Atlantic: “It wasn’t very violent. She didn’t say anything, it’s representative of the peaceful demonstrations that have been going on down here.”
