Last year, companies were put under a microscope in a way they’ve never been before. 2020 brought in a new type of scrutiny, one that has been bubbling for decades and finally burst. And the marginalized BIPOC communities have finally stepped into the light with the biggest and loudest microphone we’ve ever had. This is our time; this is our moment.
In the wake of the George Floyd murder, and the dozens more that both received — and didn’t receive — national media attention, companies were stripped down to expose some glaring realities that have been staring us Black people in the face for far too long: America has a long way to go in breaking the systemic racial inequalities that exist in our nation, and it’s up to us to hold them accountable.
