These are more images I’ve captured around Beverly Hills and Hollywood since my one of my previous blogs.
My heart is heavy with each of these killings, as a human being as a black Mom of a daughter and son – we must fight on in the midst of living life for police reform, defunding, whatever needs to be done – it’s beyond time. Beyond the hashtags, slogans and definitely beyond what we are not asking for (Black Lives Matter streets, Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben getting removed from product, realtors removing term “master” bedroom, non black actors stepping down from voicing black animated characters..) we need an end to systemic racism and police brutality.
