A Difficult and Necessary Conversation about the George Floyd Tragedy

George Floyd Memorial Wall

Bristol's first virtual Social Justice Forum was titled, A Difficult and Necessary Conversation about the George Floyd Tragedy. Over 160 people were in attendance. The forum’s purpose was to not only look at the killing of George Floyd, an African American man who died due to excessive force in police custody, but to look at the history of injustice, hate, and discrimination against Black and African Americans throughout U.S. history. Participants were then able to share firsthand experiences, comments, and questions with the group. The event was both powerful and timely. Thank you to everyone who supported the event and for all the heartfelt stories and experiences that were shared.
