Outrage over George Floyd catalyzes movements for racial justice abroad

France

Jun 11, 2020, 6:40 PM EDT

The killing of George Floyd has led to racial reckonings far beyond the U.S. In France, protesters point to incidents of police violence against black people and complain the government hasn’t done enough to address systemic racism. Activists in the United Kingdom say their national history is “whitewashed.” And in Berlin, Black Lives Matter is calling for reparations. Nick Schifrin reports.

Black Sheep is produced by Black Sheep Studios with Daniella Isaacs for BBH. It’s recorded, mixed, and mastered by our friends at Soho Radio, and the music is by Daniel Lovegrove. 

Rokhaya Diallo is a French journalist and activist who has squared up to the state on more than one occasion. She’s also a disruptive creative force to be reckoned with, directing and writing films, documentaries, and books. She’s one of Slate Magazine’s 100 Most Influential Women and was the only French person invited to attend the inauguration of the Obama Foundation. 

Rokhaya talks to our host, Daniella Isaacs, about institutional racism, microaggressions and not apologizing for her existence.
