‘Bearing witness: A portrait of Darnella Frazier’ trailer The courageous teen filmed the murder of George Floyd
• on ESPN+ will premiere a new Black History Always special on the 29th day of every month that ensures Black history is celebrated always. This month our storytelling continues with a portrait of Darnella Frazier, the courageous teen who changed the world by filming the murder of George Floyd.
The show explores Frazier’s life in the South Minneapolis neighborhood where Floyd was killed by police officer Derek Chauvin one year ago. We examine the impact of Frazier’s video in the sports world, on the discourse about race and policing, and on the neighborhood that has now become George Floyd Square. Through voices such as Marcia Howard, Frazier’s English teacher and leader of the George Floyd Square protest movement, we see the journey and struggles Frazier has experienced on her way to becoming a historical figure. Other voices include local educators, activists and Minnesota Lynx forward Napheesa Collier, who speaks on how Frazier’s video inspired her to raise her activism to a new level.
