Day in the History of Racial Injustice

February 23, 2020 ~Ahmaud Marquez Arbery (born May 8, 1994), a 25-year-old Black man, was murdered in Satilla Shores, a neighborhood near Brunswick in Glynn County, Georgia, United States. Arbery was jogging when three white men decided to pursue him: Travis McMichael and his father Gregory, who were armed and in one vehicle, and their neighbor, William “Roddie” Bryan, who was in another vehicle and recorded the pursuit and shooting on his cell phone. After several minutes, Travis McMichael got out of his truck and confronted Arbery with a shotgun; after a physical confrontation, Travis shot Arbery three times.

The mixers were not arrested until the failure to bring charges sparked nationwide protests.
