Your Imagery Work Break – Black Lives Matter Plaza

We love maps.

We love imagery.

We love work breaks.

We hope you like them as well!

We can’t believe it’s nearly fall here in the USA but that’s okay as it’s quite the awesome season! So before the cold days settle in by you, take this chance to get outside and stretch those legs. But before you head on that work break, check out this image collected on June 6, 2020 over Black Lives Matter Plaza (BLM Plaza) in Washington D.C., just a day after it was painted. We covered the painting of BLM Plaza in this month’s Our Changing Landscape, so we will spare you the details again. But what makes this visual tribute to John Richard Lewis so meaningful is that this is the first high-resolution commercial image of BLM Plaza after it was painted on June 5th – and sure it is a bit hazy but its significance to the continued fight for Civil Rights here in the USA cant’ be understated. Thank you for everything Congressman Lewis and R.I.P.

Have a great rest of your workday!
