The global foot of outrage against racism and police brutality is still pressing down on the gas pedal with no sign of braking. It was a powerful week that saw millions across the world – Black, White, Asian, Indian, LGBTQ+, old, young, in-between – come together and peacefully decry the systematic racism that has defined the United States for far too long.
It was also a week that saw President Trump and the DOJ tear-gas peaceful protestors in Washington D.C.’s Lafayette Park. Mayor Muriel Bowser answered back by literally taking #BlackLivesMatters to the streets and painting a the phrase on 16th Street, a central axis that leads southward straight to the White House.
And there was Batman. And Spider-man. And even, The Joker.
There was also a wedding.

Here is a smattering of photos from last week:
