One year from the day George Floyd was murdered, Rogers Sports & Media presents Remember 9:29 - a powerful celebration of Floyd’s legacy, featuring an ensemble of Black Canadians coming together to share real life perspectives on the Black experience.
The feature is exactly 9 minutes and 29 seconds in duration – a crucial reminder of the same time George Floyd suffered on the ground. It is produced in collaboration with Tier Zero, a BIPOC creative agency and production company invested in community and storytelling.
The George Floyd Memorial Foundation, Inc. is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established by Bridgett Floyd (sister) and family members, in memory of the late George Perry Floyd, Jr.
The Black Solidarity Fund is an opportunity to stand up against intolerance, prejudice, and injustice, and support charities across Canada focused on the advancement of Black Canadians.
Ignorance in Power
Is the enemy of justice
And no longer can we stand for that which misrepresents us,
Pressing its knee on the windpipe
from that which the voice of a people emanates
Change is not what we see, but how we see it
To make real change,
the structures keeping us in chains
We must change our minds
Through acts of love,
We gotta be it.
Let not the deaths of those who passed
be in vain
Use all of the gifts that our ancestry claims
To realize the dreams of those that died in the name of truth and light
Set out to guide us on the path that was paved
in search of freedom And justice
And no its not a cop going to jail for murder.
