Behind the Man, the Kneel, and the Protest
MetadataShow full item record
Pictures are apparently worth a thousand words, and for the picture Michael Zargaris captured during the 2016 football season of a sole player kneeling justly before an NFL game, one could say that this photo is not only worth a thousand words but serves as a symbol for a new day. The man kneeling is not Caucasian—he has mocha-colored skin with yellow undertones. His hair is not shaved, close-cut, or even put up in braids, but is standing tall and proud in an Afro. His arms rest crossed over his bent left-knee in a sign of respect.
