Derek Chauvin Verdict Sparks Celebration and Calls for Change

An air of cautious optimism flowed through Black Lives Matter Plaza in Washington, D.C., after a Minneapolis jury found former police officer Derek Chauvin guilty of all charges in the death of George Floyd, including second-degree murder.

The case drew national attention and sparked uprisings last May after a video of Chauvin killing Floyd by kneeling on his neck for more than nine minutes went viral. Ènoa Gibson, who covers culture, lifestyles and trends for 101 Magazine, captured reaction in the nation’s capital in this video, as part of a content partnership with 101, NewsVision and the Howard University News Service.
