Darnella Frazier Girl Who Recorded Floyd's Death Honoured

Darnella Frazier has been awarded for her bravely, and for bringing to light some of the atrocities and unprofessionalism of some Police officers in the United States, with the George Floyd’s death recording.

Darnella Frazier whose recording of the George Floyd’s encounter with the Police and his last minutes on earth, was honoured by Spike Lee for her courage.

Her video recording capturing George Floyd‘s death sparking worldwide protests against the Police. 

The famed director said he was “proud of my sister” in presenting Darnella Frazier with the 2020 PEN/Benenson Freedom of Expression Courage Award during Tuesday night’s PEN America Virtual Gala. 

Spike made note of what everyone’s been saying about Frazer, her courage to stand there for more than 10 minutes to record every minute of George’s last dying breath reverberated around the world

For her part, Frazer said everything that transpired after posting the video on social media has been a lot to take in and NOTHING she would have ever imagined. She also said she felt honored about Spike presenting the award.

The organisation noted that Darnella Frazer didn’t set out to change the world on May 25, as she was just another teenager looking out for her young cousin heading to a nearby store when she saw Floyd’s encounter with cops including ex-cop Derek Chauvin pressing his knee on Floyd’s neck.
