Black lives matter… Darnella Frazier awarded for courage

Darnella Frazier — the teenager who captured George Floyd‘s final minutes and started a worldwide movement — is getting an award from a prestigious nonprofit.

PEN America announced Tuesday they were honoring 17-year-old Darnella with its annual PEN/Benenson Courage Award. The org’s CEO, Suzanne Nossel, says, “With nothing more than a cell phone and sheer guts, Darnella changed the course of history in this country, sparking a bold movement demanding an end to systemic anti-Black racism and violence at the hands of police.”

If you stand back and do nothing then you can expect nothing.
