From 'I Can't Breathe' to 'Black Lives Matter': How George Floyd's Tragic Death Changed America: The Complete Diary of The Events
Date: August 2020
Duration: 3 hours 17 minutes
May 25, 2020, is a date that no one will ever forget. On that sad day, we all saw the terrible death of George Floyd. For 8 minutes and 46 seconds, George Floyd struggled for his life and mentioned his sadly known « I Can't Breathe...Mama...». David Serero’s « fact-based-only » Diary, covered the events (day by day) from the tragic death of George Floyd to the protests, but also the looting and burning of businesses, the curfews, demolishing statues, burning the American Flag, reporters being rioted, Police officers being attacked while others showed their support by putting a knee down for George Floyd, and the Black Lives Matter movement. While some protesters showed their support for the police authorities, others attacked them. This prompted authorities to even request to 'defund the Police' and passing new bills in order to have officers liable for their actions, while innocents civilians were brutally shot during the deadly weekend of Independence Day in several cities of America and thus by other civilians.
We hope that future generations will understand the escalation that led from an obvious crime to a protest, then to an American revolution, to hopefully a change for the better in a country still struggling with racism.
During the unprecedented time of the quarantine and lockdown, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and while strict rules of self-distancing were applied, thousands of Americans took to the streets to protest police brutality and support the Black Lives Matter movement. Some protesters were peaceful, others very violent, creating chaos, which ultimately required the presence of the National Guard and a curfew.
