Unearthing the stories of yesterday’s George Floyds

For a decade, my collaborator, Margaret Burnham, director of the Civil Rights and Restorative Justice Project at Northeastern University, and I have been unearthing records that tell the stories of yesterday’s George Floyds. When we call the descendants of these men and women to share our findings, they tell us, “I never thought I’d get this call.” The scars remain, and luckily, because we have found these documents, so does proof.
