Photos From A Country On Edge

The death of George Floyd was the straw that broke the back of America this week, rapidly following the shooting of Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia and Breonna Taylor in Kentucky, while our nation’s president hid behind his iPhone like the cowering 5 year old he is and tweeted racially insensitive messages that only fanned the flames of outrage. And all of this is happening as we are coming to grips with a global pandemic that has taken 100,000 American lives.

Across every state and most major cities in our great country, protests have taken to the streets to express their frustration and outrage from everything that has been taking place here over the past few weeks and months. Below are photos from various cities that really illustrate the rage that is permeating every corner of the nation, via NY Times, CNN and NPR.

A really amazing set of black and white photos (Yes, kids they did have color photos back then) taken during the Tiananmen Square protests in China 25 years ago. The story of the discovery of the photos is typical of other similar types of amazing discoveries – an undeveloped roll of film was discovered in a shoebox.
