Roots of oppression
whom it may concern
When I - here from Denmark - followed the Black Lives
Matter protests in 2020, I couldn't just sit idle. Many young protesters
focused mainly on the police killings of blacks and perhaps did not know much
about the underlying historical roots behind much of today's anger. Many books have been written about it by black authors, but to my knowledge none with pictures.
All movements quickly die out, so
therefore I hope this book can be a visual supplement.
Since I have 22.000 photos in my archives from 50 years of traveling in
the black community, I got the idea to make a visual book as an inspiration for the movement
- about the
"roots of the oppression" and systemic racism I personally have witnessed since I came to America
4 years after the triumph of the Civil Rights movement. It is my hope that the
book can be published so fast that it can be useful in Trumps and Bidens divided America with its ever growing
economic, social and racial inequality.
