How George Floyd Changed Us

(Rochester, NY) – 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 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. How George Floyd Changed Us airs Sunday, May 23 and again May 30 at 10 p.m. on AM 1370. It also repeats on Monday, May 31 at 1 p.m. and 10 p.m. on AM 1370.
