4. Darnella Frazier, the young woman who took out her cellphone...

... on a Minneapolis street to record a video of a white police officer as he knelt on George Floyd’s neck that would ricochet around the world, released a powerful statement on Tuesday addressing the first anniversary of Mr. Floyd’s death.

“A year ago, today I witnessed a murder. The victim’s name was George Floyd,” she wrote in a Facebook post. “I knew his life mattered. I knew that he was in pain. I knew that he was another black man in danger with no power.”

Ms. Frazier was just 17 at the time, she said, and was walking her 9-year-old cousin to the corner store, unaware of how drastically her life would be altered.

“It changed me. It changed how I viewed life. It made me realize how dangerous it is to be Black in America,” she wrote. “We shouldn’t have to walk on eggshells around police officers, the same people that are supposed to protect and serve.”

She took an enormous risk herself, being a young black woman in this situation. No way of knowing if the police were going to pick on her next. Well done Darnella.
