      Thanks so much for using creative commons! I cropped the picture and used it on the open access social science website TheSocietyPages.org, with credit to you and a link back to this original. The piece is about some of the first sociologists adding their perspective to the media coverage of Gray's death, now ruled a homicide. thesocietypages.org/citings/2015/05/01/sociologists-balti...

      It's me again!! Thank you so much for sharing your photo with creative commons! I'm using it to help illustrate a piece in the small sociology journal Contexts about the myth of the "superstrong black mother" and the discourse that sprang up around Toya Graham, captured on the news yelling at and hitting her son to keep him from joining the Freddie Gray protests in Baltimore. The photo is, of course, credited to you by name, and I'd love to send you a PDF or a copy of the magazine once it's printed! Really, I'd love to send piles of cash and prizes, but you know--academic publication! Anyway, please email me at letta@contexts.org to let me know your mailing address or to give me your email for sending you a PDF. With my sincere appreciation,
