George Floyd Anniversary

Tomorrow, May 25, marks one year since the death of George Floyd, which ignited global protests against systemic racism. You can mark the occasion from 9-11 pm ET with two new documentaries.

Power to the People

At 9 pm, $20 gives you access to the world premiere of Nguvu Kwa Watu (Power to the People), an 11-minute film by actor Kinyumba Mutakabbir. It will be part of a one-hour event hosted by Claudia Jordan, of Out Loud with Claudia Jordan, on the free FoxSoul.tv streamer. A portion of ticket sales will go to programs supporting restorative justice.

For your $20, you’ll also get a “live Q&A with a celebrity panel”; a 30 minute “networking experience with industry professionals”; an “autographed digital poster” from Mutakabbir; and a “personalized digital thank you note from the organizations your purchase will support.”

The Year that Shook the World

At 10 pm ET, ABC stations will air After Floyd: The Year that Shook the World – A Soul of a Nation Special. The hour promises to “reflect on the cataclysmic, generation-defining moment that arguably inspired change around the world, chronicle the dramatic and epic events surrounding Floyd’s death, and spotlight where the country goes from this point forward.”

The documentary will also start streaming the following day, May 26, on Hulu.
