80: Black Voices Amplified - The Hard Truths Of Racism

June 8, 2020

"The hardest part in the aftermath has been determining how to raise my voice and protest. I find that my emotive side is ready to scream at the world while my internal deliberative voice is telling me to "mind my manners" or "remember you still need your job."

That no matter what in 2020, we’re still treated as less than animals. That when I take off my military uniform I am George Floyd or Ahmaud Arbery."

We are so easily killed and our lives have no value."

This week, we reached out to black family, friends, and colleagues so that we could tell their stories.  In part 1, we amplify the hard truths that have emerged since the widely-broadcast murder of George Floyd as well as Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery.
