The turmoil caused by the murder of an African American citizen George Floyd by a white police officer in Minneapolis on May 25 continues to resonate globally, as African Americans continue to protest in the streets against racism and police brutality. Despite American propaganda as the “land of dreams and freedoms” that spread since the beginning of the last century, this was not the case for black Americans, who were not equivalent to white Americans in most aspects of life. Black citizens were subject to the principle of inequality, and did not stage rebellions until the 1960s – which continue today – as a result of the emergence of revolutionary personalities of black Americans, such as Malcolm X and Martin Luther King who brought about important changes in the history of blacks in America.
