We're Gonna Be Alright!

Title (Dublin Core)

We're Gonna Be Alright!

Description (Dublin Core)

This is my picture that was taken at a racial injustice march days after the police killing of George Floyd and in the midst of Covid-19. (That's me with the white towel around my neck) During this pandemic the majority of America has been focusing on health, economy, and getting back to normal. However, for most of us Black Americans the pandemic has been another exhausting setback to deal with in our pursuit of life, liberty, and the American dream. Unfortunately, our pursuit didn't just start during the pandemic and hasn't been going on for a few months, or even a year. This is a pursuit that has been going on all of our lives, the lives of our ancestors, and almost assuredly for the generations that will come after us! My hope is that when people look back and search Covid-19 and the pandemic of 2020, they will also look at the totality of the struggles of Black Americans. I want them to understand that our fight and struggle to live has been, and will always be more resilient then the forces opposing us, no matter if it's a viral agent or humanity itself!
This is a photograph and text story about a racial injustice march my fraternity brothers and sorority sisters attended after the death of George Floyd back in May during Covid-19.
