What Happened After 8:46

George Floyd’s death at the hands of men sworn to serve and protect him was a literal and symbolic tragedy which has now reverberated around the world. As news of his death spread, sorrow, fatigue, and frustration filled the streets.

Many of us have witnessed this chain reaction of events in pieces both distant and personal. This is a distilled representation of those pieces: fragments of hope, of horror, of hardship, and community action.

It is not meant to speak for everyone and could never fully represent what took place in the days after Mr. Floyd was murdered, but we hope that it is a reminder of how strong the people are, and how immediate the issue of police militarization and brutality is to all people.

Protests aren’t what they look like on TV

What protest news coverage does — and doesn’t — show you.

Become a Video Lab member!

The killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery have ignited protests around the world. Those protests have dominated news coverage. But when it comes to communicating the protests’ scale, character, and purpose, a lot of that coverage falls short.

Part of that is because of the media’s incentive to highlight the most dramatic imagery; it’s why so much protest coverage has been filled with violent and chaotic scenes of fire, looters, and tear gas. But it’s also because of the nature of protest imagery itself. In this video, journalism professor Jason Johnson and Vox editor Kainaz Amaria explain that, while the news can show you what a protest looks like, it’s a lot worse at telling you why it’s happening.

With cops under fire, businesses destroyed, innocent civilians beaten and killed, where is the justice that well-meaning protesters were seeking for George Floyd?
