On the 25th May 2020 George Floyd was pinned to the ground by police officers, called because he had allegedly used a counterfeit $20 bill. His death sparked a summer of protest, anger and debate about racism in the US and beyond.
Now, the trial of policeman Derek Chauvin has begun, with the harrowing video footage filmed by a bystander playing a major role in the case.
On the Sky News Daily podcast we hear from Grace Beahm Alford, a photographer granted access to the trial of policeman Michael Slager, about what it’s like to witness a court case with the eyes of the world watching. Plus, host Dermot Murnaghan speaks to our US correspondent Sally Lockwood about what we can expect from the Chauvin trial and the atmosphere on the ground.
