Title

Memorials and Protest at Black Lives Matter Plaza

Description

Photos taken during protests and other activities at Black Lives Matter Plaza (16th St NW between K and I, Washington D.C.) during June 2020 and again from November 2020 through January 2021.

During the second period, I was part of a crew of approximately 10 people who regularly helped maintain the signs on the large chain link fence that ran along H street NW (the northern edge of Layfayette Park) and did everything we could to keep the plaza safe and protect it from Proud Boys and similar fascist groups.
