Black Power Fist Png

The unarmed black teenager was shot dead by white police officers who claimed he was acting in self-defense, and the black power fist was utilized to symbolize the hands up, don't shoot position. Since then, it has been used as a sign of resistance and defiance in social media postings and during protests, and it was made as an emoji in 2015.

In the sports world, US runner John Carlos made history by raising a black-gloved fist on the podium to protest racism at the 1968 Olympics.

Carlos, a bronze medalist in the 200-meter sprint in Mexico City in 1968, followed gold medalist, fellow black American Tommie Smith, in raising his fist and bending his head on the podium as America's national song played.
