It’s been one year since George Floyd was murdered, one year since the world took paid attention to the atrocities of police brutality and White supremacy, one year since we took to the streets, to social media, to businesses and boldly declared Black lives matter.
And we haven’t stopped. Since the video release of George Floyd’s death, many of you have come to Medium to share your grief, your fear, your anger, your hopes for the future of Black life in America. Through your words, you’ve helped move forward the fight for freedom.
For 400 years, nine minutes, and 29 seconds, Black Americans have been fighting for our humanity. Fighting to live free without harm and with dignity. Floyd is one of many and hardly the latest. — Danielle Moodie
