Although slaves were freed over 400 years ago, slavery and racism are still alive today. On May 25, 2020, an African-American man named George Floyd was murdered at the hands of police and recorded by a teenage bystander for the world to see. This injustice isn’t the first instance in which an African-American man or woman was killed gruesomely at the hands of a police officer.

For many years, thousands of African-American people have been killed for unjust reasons due to the color of their skin. Unfortunately, a pattern has developed in which the police officers who murder these citizens are rarely charged with a crime.

After George Floyd’s murder, protests erupted all around the world to show that #BlackLivesMatter. Fortunately, the officers in Floyd’s case have been charged with crimes. But that’s not enough – protestors are demanding an entire overhaul of the policing system in our country.

Take a look through these images of the 2020 #BlackLivesMatter protests, and see the beauty of the world coming together and protesting in peace.
