Free Lesson: Black Lives Matter, the Killing of George Floyd, and the Long Fight for Racial Justice

Black Lives Matter
Choices for 21st Century - Teaching with the News

In more than 580 cities and towns across the United States, hundreds of thousands of Americans have gathered together to protest the police killing of an African American man named George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Protestors’ calls for justice, police accountability, and for an end to the systemic racism deeply embedded in the laws, practices, and institutions of the United States mark some of the most widespread protests the country has seen in half a century. The protests should be seen in the long arc of history and as part of the long black freedom struggle, a struggle that began when the first black people arrived on these shores as captives more than four hundred years ago.
