Teens talk about encounters with injustice and police violence

Today marks the one year anniversary of the death of George Floyd, an unarmed Black man, who died after a white police officer, Derek Chauvin, held his knee on Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes.

The incident, captured on cell phone video, surveillance cameras and police bodycams, led to a jury conviction last month on counts of second-degree murder, third degree murder and second degree manslaughter.

His death, sparked widespread protests globally, and reignited the Black Lives Matter movement and conversations around race. 

For the anniversary of Floyd’s death, Teens shared their stories of racial injustice and encounter with racial bias.

Kailynn Pratt tells us about her experiences protesting over George Floyd’s death in Detroit and being violently arrested by a police officer.

Justin Sybron discusses his first encounter with injustice. In third grade a group of older white boys physically attacked him and his school failed to protect him.
