Second line Sunday
Today was the Second Line for the Young Men Olympians Social and Pleasure Club, in Central City New Orleans. This is a club that dates back to 1884, and has a large following. There were several bands of dancers, in different color schemes, and brass bands to match.
I was there, with my camera, hoping to capture the feeling and the vibe.
My favorite photo is of this young man, marching out with his cohort. Carrying on a tradition from the past, yet looking toward the future. How beautiful and striking and poignant he is. He has the world ahead of him. To me, a young man like this embodies hope for the future.
Can we agree that not only do Black Lives Matter, more importantly, Young Black Lives Matter?
