Viral Photos Show Black Women Simply Unbothered By Police Intimidation

These images say it all.

Twitter user Matthew Cherry compiled a series of photos of badass black women protesters refusing to succumb to police intimidation.

Cherry made the collage of photos on Sunday as a homage to Black History Month. His tweet includes the famous 2016 photo of Iesha Evans ― whose peaceful demeanor during a Black Lives Matter march served as a symbolic contrast between the tones of law enforcement and BLM protesters during the summer of 2016 ― as well as photos from women of the civil rights era who had no time for police coercion.

Cherry’s followers even chimed in with other photos illustrating that black women aren’t easily intimidated. Check out the pics below:
