Beyoncé is using her A-list influence to bring attention to the events unfolding in Baltimore, Maryland.

The singer took to Instagram to send a message to her 14 million fans.

But instead of using words, she used two powerful and provocative images.

In the first photo she featured a masked black man running ahead of white police officers in riot gear.

A video posted by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on Apr 30, 2015 at 9:54am PDT

The animated picture is revealed to be a historic TIME magazine image from 1968, but the year is crossed out and replaced with 2015.

Bey doesn't leave a caption, but the message is clear: race relations have not improved in 47 years.

The second Instagram she posted contains a call to action:

Rather than condemn the actions by the parties on either sides of the civil unrest, she neutrally calls for relief efforts.

Beyoncé's not the only celebrity weighing in on Baltimore. On Tuesday, Jesse Williams penned a passionate essay about the civil arrest in the northeast.
