Tank Man

OK, this is not about Black visual art, but it is about one of the most iconic images ever. I remember how much this photo affected me as a young person. When I saw this lone man stand up to a line of tanks, I knew that human beings were able to reach down deep for courage that I never imagined existed.
So as we celebrate the anniversary of Tiananmen, let's remember this solitary, strong, freedom fighter and pray for human rights worldwide, and at home.

So hard to believe that was 20 years ago. I was in college and the whole thing still seem so surreal to me...
