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.”
