On May 25, 2020, George Floyd was murdered in police custody on a Minneapolis street. While police initially downplayed the incident, the video of his final moments quickly went viral. Floyd’s death followed those of Breonna Taylor, a Louisville, Ky., woman who was killed by police in her home during a botched raid, and Ahmaud Arbery, a Georgia man who was killed by local white residents, with no charges filed until a video of the attack was released about three months later. After the three high-profile Black deaths, millions took to the streets across the nation and the world protesting racial injustice and calling for policing to be reformed, defunded or even abolished.
