Troy Gaston: activist for social justice

by staff

Troy Gaston is a community activist who was captured on camera during the 2020’s summer of racial reckoning. Gaston chants as he walks between two bicycle walls created by protesters and Chicago police officers during a post-election rally at Daley Plaza in downtown Chicago on Nov. 4, 2020. Gaston has participated in protests everyday since last March against police brutality and over-surveillance in the Englewood neighborhood. “The wheels of justice turn slow, but they do turn,” Gaston said. “So I’m out there for future generations to have the opportunity to seek dreams which have been violently deferred.”
