How George Floyd Changed Us

As we mark a year since George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis, join MPR News host Angela Davis for a reflection on how he changed us.

In this one-hour special, you’ll hear a range of voices articulating the transformation that’s taken place on both personal and community levels --from the young people whose worldview has been forever altered to the community members working to ensure the Black man killed when a police officer kneeled on his neck is never forgotten. We’ll also check in with a renowned expert on trauma and healing on what gives him hope a year later.
