46-year-old Floyd died after he was pinned by a white police officer in Minneapolis. The video of the brutal act went viral on the internet. In the clip, it can be seen clearly that an officer has put his knee on Floyd’s neck as he gasps for breath.
Derek Chauvin, the officer, who was behind the act has been arrested and charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. There are numerous protests taking place across the United States and in the other parts of the world demanding justice for George Floyd.
People in the art industry observed Blackout Tuesday.
This was a show of solidarity to the ongoing protests that are demanding justice for Floyd, and also for the protests that are being carried out demanding an end to other crimes against African-Americans in the United States.
