Samantha Francine is an activist, a woman of color, and is dedicated to education and bringing about change.

On June 3rd she was participating in a Black Lives Matter protest in the resort town of Whitefish, Montana when she was approached by Jay Snowden, a visibly irritated and irate man shouting obscenities and ripping signs out of protestors hands. At that moment she chose to do what I hope we all would have the courage to do, she stood her ground and stared the man down.

The interaction between Samantha and Snowden and his subsequent behavior was captured on video, and the still picture of Samantha staring into his eyes quickly went viral, receiving national media attention.
