FEATURING ANITA WILLS – This year saw a massive burst of popular anger at the racist police violence facing Black Americans. In the wake of George Floyd’s killing at the hands of Minneapolis police, videotaped for the world to see, hundreds of thousands of Americans marched and protested and are still doing so in some cities. The slogan Black Lives Matter became mainstream.
