CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Relatives of George Floyd took part in a discussion examining the role his death played in sparking a social justice movement.

Cuyahoga Community College hosted the virtual conversation with Angela Harrelson and Selwyn Jones, Floyd’s aunt and uncle.

Harrelson and Jones have traveled the United States in the last year to talk about their nephew and to promote a discussion on social justice issues African-Americans face.

Protests against systemic racism broke out across the world following Floyd’s death in May 2020. Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted in Floyd’s murder.
