The “Black Lives Matter Movement” series explores the titular social cause and their strivings for racial justice amid the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. Formed in 2013 after the killing of Black teen, Trayvon Martin, their work has been grounded on bringing an end to police brutality and racial violence against Black members of society.  The grassroots group’s focus on protest is central to this work. As a photographer of color, this art form affords me a safe space to delve into the realities of those often overlooked and discounted; something I desperately wanted to confront in this work. For me, my images are my protest.
