Lift your voice : how my nephew George Floyd's murder changed the world

Angela Harrelson (Author), Michael Graubart Levin (Author)
Angela Harrelson, George Floyd's aunt and closest relative, tells the behind-the-scenes story of George's family--how he lived and why he died--and how the world can find a solution to racism through his death. This is the story of Angela's lifelong relationship with George Floyd--whom the family called Perry--and how, after being suddenly thrust into the spotlight, she went on a quest to make sure her nephew did not die in vain. It's a story of tragic loss and a worldwide uprising to ensure Perry's death ushers society into a time where people are no longer judged, hated, or killed because of the color of their skin
