‘Upside down’

In slavic folklore Baba Yaga’s house used to stand on chicken leg. Soviets are hardcore, so they made a whole apartment block on chicken leg. And they built it from the top!

Inside Charity Hospital in New Orleans. Despite the excessive water damage throughout the building, there was still electricity in some parts of the building.

Doctors, nurses, patients, and other staff and security members spent up to a week trapped inside of Charity Hospital due to the rising flood waters after Hurricane Katrina.

Despite being decontaminated and inspected by the US Army Corps of Engineers and National Guard, Charity closed down following Hurricane Katrina.

Clayborn Temple is mostly known for its important role during the civil rights movement in Memphis. Throughout the 1960s, sanitation workers marched from Clayborn to City Hall everyday for weeks, seeking reform for the Memphis Public Works policies that included discrimination, unfair working conditions, and drastically insufficient wages.

Martin Luther King Jr.’s last march started from this church, where it ended prematurely and disastrously when some youth began breaking windows and looting stores, turning the peaceful protest into a riot. Police followed the protesters to Clayborn, launching tear canisters into the sanctuary and beating people as they lay on the floor seeking fresh air.

Over 280 people were arrested that day, 60 were reported injured. There was one fatality, a 16-year-old boy was shot in the stomach with a shotgun by a police officer as he was suspected of looting a store.

Dr. King returned to Memphis where he gave his “I’ve been to the Mountaintop” address, and vowed that he will lead a second, peaceful march through Memphis. He was assassinated the following evening.
