Every couple of decades, a generation-defining moment happens. It becomes the question that people ask each other years later: “Do you remember where you were when you heard the news?” In the 1960s, it was the assassinations of Kennedy and Dr. King. In the ’80s it was the explosion of the Space Shuttle Challenger. The 2000s were defined by the morning of Sept. 11, 2001.

For the current generation, their moment happened two years ago when news and a horrifying video spread of the murder of Minneapolis resident George Floyd by then-police officer Derek Chauvin as he pressed the life out of Floyd for nine minutes and 29 seconds. With his knee pressed into Floyd’s back, the officer pinned the 46-year-old man to the ground as Floyd pleaded, “I can’t breathe.”
