Black fist up

I don't think Black people realize just how significant P Diddy's ad in the middle of Times Square is to American culture and New York politics. Only forty years ago U.S. Black Olympiats, John Carlos and Tommie Smith got their medals taken from them and families destroyed for showing the Black Power sign at the 1968 Games....I took this pic while crossing busy 7th Ave. I had to aim my cam high enough to shoot past people's heads. Not the most extraordinary pic, but it does make me proud!
