A lone Toronto protestor speaks with a police officer outside the court during the Buddy Evans inquest.<br />
<br />
Photographer: Jeff Goode<br />
<br />
Date: August 20, 1979<br />
<br />
Context: Twenty-four year old Buddy Evans, a black man, was shot and killed by a Toronto police officer outside a nightclub on King Street West in 1978. A year later in 1979 Albert Johnson, also black, was shot in his apartment by police. In both cases the exoneration of the Toronto police officers who shot the men raised racial tensions in the city. Although this photo shows a sole protestor, several demonstrations of thousands of people took place in Toronto demonstrating against racism and police brutality in Metro’s police force.
