CHARLOTTE, NC - SEPTEMBER 23: Demonstrators take a break from marching as a helicopter flies above on September 23, 2016 in Charlotte, NC. Protests began on Tuesday night following the fatal shooting of 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott at an apartment complex near UNC Charlotte. A state of emergency was declared overnight in Charlotte and a midnight curfew was imposed by mayor Jennifer Roberts, to be lifted at 6 a.m. Despite a midnight curfew, police allowed the peaceful march to continue without interference.

Every time another U.S. city is besieged by unrest following the shooting death of a black person by police officers, many are quick to condemn the violence and protests. And each time we are left with indelible images that illustrate the pent up pain that only seems to get any focus in the aftermath of death. And while it appears as though hopelessness and despair have set in with these two Charlotte protesters pictured above, as history has shown, African-Americans are a resilient bunch who will always march on.

Frederick Douglass observed that “power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.” The empty symbolism of hugs—or barbecues or picnics or neighborhood block parties—will not stop police thuggery and brutality against black and brown people in America.
