A Mount Holyoke College alumna, Jenna Ruddock-Franzini, has published a photographic essay on the protests over systematic racism in the US in Washington, DC . She has an extraordinarily keen eye for a moment that captures the passions and motivations of people who are protesting injustice. She also has captured the degree to which law enforcement in the US has been excessively militarized. The essay was published in The Progressive and I encourage readers to look at the photographs closely.
