Protests continue to roll through over 100 U.S. cities in the wake of the death of George Floyd last week. Christiane Amanpour is joined by congresswoman for the District of Columbia, Eleanor Holmes Norton, to discuss the importance of justice and her experience during the Freedom Summer of 1964. Civil rights activist Martin Luther King III and Campaign Zero co-founder DeRay Mckesson, talk to Christiane about the violence of the current protests and the need to make yourself heard at the ballot box. Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo, tells Christiane why he joined marchers over the weekend and explains why he thinks that law enforcement should condemn the killing of George Floyd. And New York Times journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones, who spearheaded the paper’s 1619 project, contextualizes the current situation into the broader narrative of slavery in America.
