This photo was taken by the young photographer Jonathan Bachman in 2016 at Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in the United States. After the killing of two African American men by the police and after the massacre in Dallas in which five policemen were killed by a sniper during a demonstration against police violence, there were numerous confrontations between order enforcement personnel and African American communities. Among the demonstrators one woman stands out, Leshia L. Evans, a 35 year-old nurse who, heedless of the danger and clearly unarmed, approached the policemen to be arrested. Her calm and serene gesture of offering her wrists to the policemen was enough to break the climate of tension between the two sides.
