All of the photography you see is the mighty work of Misan Harriman.
“What is there wasn’t a video?”
“You’re not supposed to be so blind with patriotism that you can’t face reality. Wrong is wrong.” – Malcom X
“I am no longer accepting the things I can’t change. I am changing the things I can not accept.” – Dr. Angela Davis
“White supremacy is a white problem that needs to be solved, not a Black problem to be empathized with.”
“The system is stained with the blood of innocent Black lives.”
“They kill our daddies, then make fun of us for being fatherless.”
“Say Their Names.”
“Matter is the MINIMUM. Black lives are worthy. Black lives are beloved. Black lives are needed.”
“Ya’ll f*ckin’ with the wrong generation! Watch this space! Power to the People.”
“Admit your privilege.”
“If you are neutral in a situation of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.”
“Tolerating racism is RACISM.”
“If you’re not outraged, you’re part of the problem!”
“White silence = white violence.”
“You take our beauty. You take our culture. You take our lives. Enough is Enough.”
“It’s not one Bad Apple. It’s a Rotten Tree.”
“End police immunity. Fund Black communities.”
“If you’re not sure how to respond, LISTEN. If you’re not sure what to read, RESEARCH. If you’re not sure what to do, DONATE, PARTICIPATE, PETITION. “Not sure” becomes “not my problem”. It’s not enough to be “not sure”, when racism is still impacting lives.
“Solidarity. Not just sympathy!”
“There comes a time when silence is betrayal.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
