A protestor claims victory.

A protestor raises his fist in an attempt to claim a temporary victory. The victory comes after an all-day march to the Mayors house by Black Lives Matter protestors. I was looking around and taking in everything I was seeing and I saw this guy climbing the pole. I got my camera out in anticipation of something organic happening and just as I was able to focus he raised his fist in victory.
