When I saw Twan and his son reading a book together, I thought of the assumptions that people have of George Floyd Square. Narratives are powerful and can shape our understanding of ourselves, our neighbors and the world. When I saw them, I saw a quiet and yet powerful disruption of multiple narratives.
To be a witness to this quiet declaration of love felt important to document. It was a moment that was deeply antithetical to the stereotypes that suggest Black men are absent in the lives of their children and yet, here, they were simply enjoying time together.
