Thursday marks one month since George Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man, died after a white police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes as Floyd lay on the pavement in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Floyd's death has sparked global protests about racial inequality and police brutality, and renewed pledges from some to fight racism.
