Activism After George Floyd's Murder

What A Day - May 25, 2021 - 22:27

Today is the 1-year anniversary of the murder of George Floyd. His friends, family, and the community of Minneapolis will memorialize him with a gathering and a candlelight vigil. Floyd's killing by now-former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin rallied activists to demand that their local police departments reform, be defunded, or be abolished completely. We discussed these efforts with Oluchi Omeoga, a co-creator of Black Visions Collective and organizer in Minneapolis.And in headlines: Myanmar's ousted leader appears in court, EU leaders agree on sanctions against Belarus, and #AdriansKickback becomes a Gen Z mini-purge in Huntington Beach, California.Show Notes:Black Visions Collective – https://twitter.com/BlackVisionsMNFor a transcript of this show, please visit crooked.com/whataday.
