The young woman who recorded George Floyd’s death receives a special mention from the Pulitzer Prize

Darnella Frazier, the teenager who recorded George Floyd’s death under the knee of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin with her mobile phone, received a special mention from the Pulitzer Prize committee on Friday for her “crucial role” as a citizen “in the search. of truth and justice “.

The board of Columbia University, in New York, charged with presenting this award to the best journalistic and literary works annually, said Frazier “bravely recorded the murder of George Floyd, a video that sparked protests against police brutality throughout the world”.

In turn, she has highlighted “the crucial role of citizens in the search for truth and justice for journalists,” says the newspaper ‘The Washington Post’.

The video of Frazier, who was 17 years old when she recorded it, served to contradict the initial version of the Minneapolis Police of Floyd’s death. The young woman also testified in the recent trial in which Chauvin ended up being convicted of all three murder charges that were brought against him.
