One year ago, George Floyd died after he was pinned beneath a police officer’s knee, and a global reckoning over anti-Black racism ensued. Derek Chauvin was later convicted of murder.
This week, The Globe and Mail published the Time for Change special report on the anniversary of Floyd’s death: intended to amplify the voices of Black leaders, while shedding light on the work that still needs to be done to combat systemic inequalities across infrastructure, employment and other facets of daily life.
