Event description
Our panel marks George Floyd's death, and analyse the impact of his murder on the rest of the world.

About this event

On 25 May 2020, a Black man was killed in Minnesota by Derek Chauvin - and his murder sparked the largest civil rights demonstrations across the US in all of history. It didn’t stop there: protestors against police brutality took to the streets of France, Nigeria, India, Australia and beyond, wielding placards that bore Floyd’s face alongside other victims of racism.

Though the circumstances surrounding the deaths of Black victims at the hands of police officers were unique, threads of historical racism and colonisation wove through the uprisings, tearing off the mask of systems designed to suppress Black people. A year after Floyd’s murder, and with only 17% of Americans believing that race relations have improved, our panel will be exploring the global impact of his death on Black rights around the world.

Join our chair, Oliver Laughland, The Guardian's US southern bureau chief, and with Rokhaya Diallo, journalist, writer and filmmaker, Paris, France, Gacheke Gachihi, coordinator of the Mathare Social Justice Centre (MSJC) and member of the Social Justice Centers Working Group Steering Committee in Nairobi, Kenya; and Rinu Oduala, Human Rights Advocate, Lagos Nigeria and Andrea Jenkins, vice president, Minneapolis City Council as they share their unique and personal stories of the Black Lives Matter protests.
