A black-and-white digital photograph by Devin Allen of an unidentified man running from a line of charging police in riot gear on a street in Baltimore, Maryland. The man, in the right foreground, wears a plain shirt, pants, and dark-colored shoes. He has a light-colored baseball cap on backwards, and a dark-colored handkerchief tied at the back of his head and pulled up over his nose and mouth. People at the far left center of the frame also run from the street onto the sidewalk, several carrying cameras and video cameras. A large crowd of police officers wearing riot helmets and carrying batons run down the street from the background toward the man in the foreground. A street sign over a traffic light in the background identifies the cross street at Camden Street. Banners on street lights advertise the Baltimore Orioles baseball team. A large banner on a building on the right side of the street reads "SPORTS / LEGENDS / MUSEUM / OPEN".
