Protesting at this moment is an imperative response to police brutality and racism. Across America, and throughout New York City, people have come together in record-breaking numbers, outspoken and persistent, to convey the urgent need for change.
History shows that when people come together to express their collective frustrations and demand to be heard, change happens. Sparked by love, anger, compassion, and a fierce yearning for equality, protest can serve as a positive catalyst in our society.
Photographers Kisha Bari, Tish Lampert, and Ginny Suss have dedicated their work to uplifting the people at the front lines of critical social uprisings, spotlighting everyday heroes, and risking their own safety to make sure that these moments are remembered. A selection of Bari, Lampert, and Suss’ photography are on view in ROAR: A Celebration of Protest Moments from March 11, 2020 through September 20, 2020.
