Whom It May Concern
When I - here from Denmark - followed the Black Lives Matter protests in 2020, I
couldn't just sit idly by. Many young protesters focused mainly on the police
killings of black people, perhaps not knowing much about the historical roots
behind much of the anger today. Many books have been written about this by black
authors, but to my knowledge none with pictures. All movements die out quickly,
so I hope this book can be a visual addition.
Since I have 22,000 photos in my archives from 50 years of traveling in the
Black community, I came up with the idea of creating a visual book as an
inspiration for the movement - about the oppression and systemic
racism that I have personally witnessed since coming to America 4 years after
the triumph of the Civil Rights Movement. It is my hope that the book can be
published quickly enough to be useful in Trump's and Biden's divided America
with its ever growing economic, social and racial inequality.
