Danny Lyon, “As Demonstrators Block Traffic to Protest Segregation,” 1963
Atlanta 1963. People protesting segregation by blocking traffic are met with a mob aiming at disrupting the protest. An unknown uninvolved woman jumps in to confront one of the mob and voice her support for the Blacks. She joins the protest when she is taunted with “If you feel that way, why don’t you just marry one of them?”
Which invites a Sunday morning reflection on what in the way of anti-racist acts we have done lately.
