On May 25, George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, died when a white police officer knelt on his neck for eight minutes and 46 seconds, while Floyd screamed, “I can’t breathe.”Black people face injustices and prejudices like this on a daily basis. This is a global crisis.Many of us are searching for the best ways to help and support the Black community, and there are many ways to do so. We can have discussions about anti-Black racism, educate ourselves on white-privilege, listen to the stories of Black people, and support Black-owned businesses. We can also donate to Black organizations, such as the ones below.
