In the beginning (according the web):

Leshia Evans is a 28 year old nurse from New York that traveled down to the Baton Rouge protests to stand up for the injustices she witnessed over the weekend when 2 African-American suspects were killed by police.

The REAL Deal (according to our sources):

When the video surfaced from the officer shootings in Baton Rouge, Leshia felt an obligation to do something. She was a very active social advocate on Facebook and supporter of Black Lives Matter.

She felt in order for her 5 year old son to grow up in a better world, people need to stand up and speak out against systematic racism. Her son is biracial and in order to create a more fair society, we must not allow prejudices to flourish in our communities.

A second angle from another photographer has emerged also. These pictures are already being compared to other iconic imagery such as the man standing in front of the army tank in Tiananmen Square. 

Leshia was subsequently arrested and processed in the Baton Rouge jail due to her demonstration. She was held overnight and then released the next day. She wants her experience to serve as an example for others to stand up and speak out against police brutality.
