Historical Perspective on the Significance of the Ongoing George Floyd Protests
CNN’s Ana Cabrera called on Doris to provide historical perspective on the significance of the ongoing George Floyd protests and the movement for racial justice. Reminded of the Civil Rights movement in 1965, Doris quoted President Lyndon Johnson: “Every now and then, history and fate meet at a certain time in a certain place. So, it was in Lexington and Concord. So, it was at Appomattox. So, it was in Selma, Alabama.” And then she said, “And one could add today, ‘and so it was in Minneapolis, Minnesota’.” Watch the rest of their conversation here.
