Flashback and Flashpoint: Fury over Injustice

A mural in Gainesville, Florida, ahonors the life of Breanna Taylor. Taylor, an EMT, was shot and killed by police in her own home in Louisville, Kentucky in March. Questions about her death are being raised again in the nationwide protests sparked by the death of George Floyd while in police custody in Minneapolis in May.
The author, standing in the back, joins others protesting racial injustice at an intersection in Gainesville, Florida, that is often used as a focal point for political messaging. A bigger march in downtown Gainesville drew more than a thousand protestors in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
