Remember this iconic photo of Leshia Evans, 28, a mother and licensed practical nurse from New York, was attending the Baton Rouge protest, in Louisiana, over the fatal shooting of a black man by police, when she was arrested.
The moment was captured in a moving photograph: Evans in a flowing dress standing with her arms crossed facing down a line of heavily armed police while two armored officers rush forward to put her in handcuffs.
After being released from jail, Evans – whose identity was revealed exclusively by DailyMail.com – said she was acting as a ‘vessel’ for God during the tense confrontation.
‘I just need you people to know,’ she said on Facebook this morning. ‘I appreciate the well wishes and love, but this is the work of God. I am a vessel! Glory to the most high! I’m glad I’m alive and safe. And that there were no casualties that I have witnessed first hand.’
