This is for you, Susannah Fox – This week’s photograph is of Regina Holliday and Cindy Throop who helped organize a flash mob in Dupont Circle. Regina’s shown myself and others of the power of the artists’s brush in creating change. I wouldn’t have envisioned this a year ago for health care.
The scene on Tuesday reminded me of another photograph I took a few weeks ago, while at BWI airport. It is of a letter written to Thurgood Marshall in 1954 about his efforts – “It is really wonderful what can be done with these television cameras.” Less than a mile from the spot Regina is standing is where Justice Marshall planned the strategy to overturn school segregation. The building is now called the Thurgood Marshall Center, pictured below.
