CAMERA OPERATOR, NORTH AND PENNSYLVANIA AVENUES, APRIL, 2015, BALTIMORE
THOMAS ROBERTS, MSNBC JOURNALIST AND GAY ACTIVIST
STILL TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT COLOR EYES I HAVE DURING TENSIONS IN BALTIMORE. NO one can ever accuse me of NOT being versatile, especially in times of crisis!
Very difficult to photograph your eyes.
CHESS MASTERS, PENNSYLVANIA AND NORTH AVENUES, BALTIMORE, 2015
SO MANY BLACK MEN HAVE HIT ON ME, EVER SINCE I MOVED TO BALTIMORE! Gentlemen. Open about their intentions. No pussyfooting around. This guy wanted to take me to dinner. When I told my neighbor, Brent, who is an angry Black Man, he said to me, “Why not go have dinner with him?” That is certainly more palatable than the guy who wanted to take me to a bar at 9:30 AM. LOVE IT!

THE NIGHT BEFORE THE NATIONAL GUARD APPEARED. BURNING CAR. CHARLES VILLAGE, BALTIMORE, 2015
GETTING THROUGH TO 911 REQUIRED PATIENCE THAT NIGHT. FIRST ATTEMPTS RENDERED A BUSY SIGNAL. SECOND ATTEMPT, YOU REACHED A RECORDING, IMPLORING YOU NOT TO HANG UP. ULTIMATELY, COORDINATION OF POLICE, FIRE DEPARTMENT AND HELICOPTER GUIDANCE COMMUNICATED LOCATION AND FIRE WAS PUT OUT. BUSY NIGHT FOR EMERGENCY OPERATIONS. THEY WERE STRETCHED TO THE MAX. (Sorry for all caps here. Didn’t realize it was gonna be that long.)
