While the rest of the world is #PrayingForBaltimore, the rest of the world is not in the middle of the bullets, tear-gas, fires and early curfew. However, for 26-year-old Devin Allen, he knows exactly what is happening; as it is playing out in front of his eyes.

Allen, a Baltimore resident was able to photograph a black man running away from an army of law enforcement officers; dressed in all armor. This image made the cover of TIME magazine’s latest issue. The title, America, 1968; 1968 crossed out and replace with 2015. “What Has Changed. What Hasn’t,” being the byline, has sparked a slew of emotions.

After making the cover, Allen expresses his emotions on Twitter.

Cant believe i made times magazine ::: i did it for my city :: i have been crying all morning

His stance:

We are fighting for the Past Present & Future ::: If you love this city like i do i need you to stand strong and support this city ::: show them how strong we are as one ::: #WELOVEBALTIMORE #Ripfreddiegray :::: #DVNLLN

Back in 1968, Baltimore – and many other cities – was experiencing some of the same issues. This was the year that Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. Like the death of Freddie Gray, the historical death sparked riots among black residents and police, which is why the question has come up; What Has Changed. What Hasn’t.
