This 1895 map of New York City was created by socialist activist Walter Vrooman, who hoped that by showing the "concrete socialism" of every street, park, school, public building, and public dock in red (and allowing private enterprises to recede into the white background), he might persuade readers that the rest of the map should be socialist as well.

This photograph of a Harvard University Police officer at a Boston protest against mistreatment of people of color at the hands of police was widely shared on Twitter.
