Manifestation contre la brutalité policière et le racisme

A selection of photos which I snapped at the Manifestation Contre la Brutalité policière et le Racisme, in Montreal on June 7th, 2020.

Present organizations: comité Québec con Ayotzinapa – Bat Bravo pou lajenes – Fondation Busta John – Hoodstock – Affirmation de la femme Afro du Québec – organisme Evolujeunes 1930 – Black Rose Alliance – OFC community Directory Bottin Communautaire.

Thank you to all the beautiful and generous individuals who accepted my request for a photo during the Manifestation, your welcoming smiles, kind words, speeches and beautiful handmade protest signs are teaching me so much. I am grateful to you for taking on the burden of educating and challenging me and countless other white people about racism and privilege and for reminding us of our duty to make things right. I recognize that it’s a privilege to learn about racism rather than experience it first hand. I will continue to listen, read, donate, educate, share and march by your side.

OUR LONG WALK HOME

Our Long Walk Home was a symbolic walk on Emancipation Day, Saturday August 1st 2020, with the goal of encouraging people to join, participate, and contribute to the campaign of reclaiming and rebuilding the Negro Community Center (NCC), Montreal’s oldest Black community center.

The event was hosted by Revive NCC, DESTA Black Youth Network, Coalition de la Petite-Bourgogne / Quartier en santé, Cote Des Neiges Black Community Association.

Thank you to all the beautiful souls that permitted me to show support and walk by their side and to photograph them during a very important event.
