Multilayered George Floyd Protests & Unrest (Rodney King Memory), Black Leader Quotes & Protest Songs/Films
This special podcast (Monday, June 1, 2020) looks at the protests and unrest over the past week in the United States. The actions stem from the death of George Floyd, a black man who was killed by a white officer in Minneapolis.
The podcast delves into the meaning and underlying causes of the protest and unrest, which go beyond Floyd's death. Quotes (see podcast Twitter) from black leaders are presented for reflection while songs and films are suggested to deal with the ongoing issue of police brutality and other injustices plaguing our society and in particular the African American community.
