Photo of the Day – 01/06/17 (“Klan v. Police”, 1992)

Daily Photo — “Klan v. Police, 1992”

Use the photos posted in this feature for writing prompts, warm-up activities, drawing templates or as part of a photo analysis.

Given the current state of affairs regarding Civil Rights, the police, and racial tensions in general this is a very interesting and rich photograph for discussion and analysis. Take in the photo as a whole, with context, and then even the details such as the reflection itself and the expression on the officer’s face.

1992. A young boy in KKK robes sees his reflection in a riot shield held by an African-American state trooper. Taken in Gainesville, Ga. by Todd Robertson.
