Abstract

The death of George Floyd while being arrested by police in Minneapolis, Minnesota has led to a renewed wave of #BlackLivesMatter protests both in the US and across the world. Clive James Nwonka looks at why these protests are different this time, how social media have allowed them to spread across the world, and the limitations of film and cultural texts to address racism in society.
