On Thursday, Terrence Floyd, the brother of George Floyd, whose death at the hands of police in May 2020 sparked widespread protests and calls for justice, spoke at the Centennial Room of the Nebraska Union. Terrence, who has become an activist in the wake of his brother’s death, challenged the crowd to carry on George’s legacy through action and activism. The event, which was moderated by Chris Graves, an assistant professor at the College of Journalism and Mass Communications, and Charlie Foster, assistant vice chancellor for inclusive student excellence, was attended by students, staff, and faculty and was organized by the University Program Council Nebraska. The hour-long conversation was a powerful reminder of the ongoing need for change and progress in the fight for racial justice and the importance of carrying on George Floyd’s legacy through activism and action.
