Insider voice memo 3: My Visit To George Floyd Square

A War Memorial, Peace Vigil, Community Garden, And More


This past Monday, July 5 I was in Minneapolis-St. Paul visiting family. I decided to make a trip to 38th and Chicago where Derek Chauvin killed George Floyd, and where thousands of people reclaimed that public space to defend Black lives, reimagine public safety, mourn, and celebrate.

I didn’t know when I would next get the chance to visit this sacred space.

As I moved around the area, I turned on my voice memo recorder to capture my thoughts and feelings. I also captured photos and saved them to this Instagram highlight.

Have you been? If so what was your experience?
