Beyond the Protest

“I love America more than any other country in the world, and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually.” -James Baldwin

Beyond the Protest is a series of conversations with people involved in or affected by protest, following the police killing of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, in Minneapolis. The series explores the ongoing movement for racial justice and against police violence, specifically violence toward Black people and other marginalized groups.

Participants include people across generations and backgrounds, including student activists, community leaders, educators, police officers and others who share how the protest experience can challenge viewpoints and lead to personal and social change.
