In Focus: George Floyd’s Legacy and Impact
A year after George Floyd’s murder in Minneapolis sparked calls for racial justice around the world, his memory is being kept alive through memorial sites, creative expression, proposed policy changes and community aid work.

Minnesota continues to grapple with questions about police reform, racial inequity and the meaning of the word “justice” one year after Floyd, a Black man, was killed by a white Minneapolis police officer on Memorial Day 2020. Why is it important to carry history with us? And how does the past inform our work toward a more equitable future?

On May 26 at noon, MPR News host Angela Davis will lead our latest In Focus conversation with community leaders, memory keepers and activists working to preserve and maintain George Floyd’s impact and legacy in our Minnesota communities and beyond.

In Focus is a series of convenings we are committed to leading on Minnesota’s persistent racial disparities. Through conversations with community leaders that are shaped by our curious, engaged audience, we hope to encourage new connections and relationships that will help Minnesota communities make progress toward equity and inclusion.
