George Floyd Memorial Site in Minneapolis at Chicago & 38th Street - now considered a sacred site.

Quote and photography-Susu Jeffrey, Minneapolis WILPF

The bus stop image is in front of Cup Foods (Chicago near 38th St. in south Mpls) where Mr. Floyd was accused of trying to pass an alleged counterfeit $20 bill & the cops were called & he was killed on Monday, May 25.
Saturday night’s street gathering at 38th & Chicago with the beautiful altar in the middle of the intersection was peaceful. Note the respectful behavior of the multi-racial “protestors" at Chicago & 38th Street.
I was impressed with the crowd behavior. It has been an honor to participate in the memorials for George Floyd.
