Saturday marks four years since the police murder of George Floyd. His killing led to massive protests across the country, with many calling for racial justice.

Here & Now‘s Jane Clayson looks at what has happened since, and who George Floyd was, with Toluse Olorunnipa, White House bureau chief for the Washington Post, and Robert Samuels, national political enterprise reporter for the Washington Post. They are authors of “His Name is George Floyd: One Man’s Life and the Struggle for Racial Justice,” now out in paperback.
