My friend T is a powerhouse in all ways, and this summer she has been leading family-friendly protests with a few other people. I went down to help out.
This memorial, that honors 216 Black lives taken by racial violence, was powerful.
So many names. Ones I am familiar with, ones I am not.
This person was taking pictures of the protesters. He said he had come to Portland from Minneapolis to capture the protests. Unlike me, he probably doesn’t have many pictures where his lens cover interferes with the image.
And there’s T, being the leader she was born to be.
