BLM Aftermath: Houston
In Chapter 4, “BLM: Houston” we examine what happens when a city refuses to bend to the will of the activists who descend on their city and choose to deny them the chaos they seek. Houston, birthplace of George Floyd, held two funerals – one led by Rev. Al Sharpton – but managed to keep the rioting at bay. “BLM: Houston” examines why that city was successful in maintaining peace during the tumultuous summer of 2020 – and why it can serve as a lesson to the rest of the country.
BLM Aftermath: Atlanta - Bullying Black Businesses
In BLM: Aftermath – Chapter 1, we explored the consequences of the protests and riots following the murder of George Floyd from the perspective of those living in Floyd’s Minneapolis neighborhood. In BLM: Chapter 2 – Cleveland, we looked at what the 2020 demonstrations did to a city already familiar with economic devastation resulting from racial tension through the implementation of a policy of public safety oversight by a community-led oversight board, leading to a police exodus and rising crime. In the newest installment, BLM: Chapter 3 – Atlanta, we interview business owners and Atlanta residents who recall the damage done to the black economic sector in the city when tensions led to a fight over voting legislation and the subsequent removal of MLB’s All-Star game.

In BLM: Chapter 2 – Cleveland, we look at what the 2020 demonstrations did to a city already familiar with economic devastation resulting from racial tension. In the wake of the protests, Cleveland voters implemented a policy of public safety oversight by a community-led board (over the objections of the city’s African American mayor and police chief), a situation that has led to an anemic police force and rising crime in the city.
