Truthdiggers

Most recent Truthdigger Week of Nov 1, 2022
A black-and-white image of a man's face is large on the left side. Behind him, like a collage, several policemen walk side by side, toward us. Behind the policemen, also like a collage, two women and a man hold up a sign that reads, "END RACISM." On the right side of the picture, a soldier in camouflage print looks away from us. The soldier holds a large gun and wears a safety helmet with his face guard up.
