The American justice system was built to criminalize and brutalize people of color and to protect white, state power.
A year ago, the arrest and a guilty verdict in a murder in a case like Derek Chauvin’s was nearly unthinkable.
But Darnella Frazier, who refused to stop filming George Floyd’s murder, forced America to look harder.
Then a multiracial mass movement of people rose united to cry “Black Lives Matter” all across the country.
They fueled a national racial reckoning, changing the cultural conversation, impacting the judicial process, and finally cracking the blue wall of silence.

And our movement’s work is far from done. We ask you to stand with Free Speech TV as we say together Black Lives Matter. Stay tuned.
