The firestorm of protests and arrests that followed has led to nation-wide discussions about race, media coverage, policing, and the First Amendment of the Constitution. This infoPlaylist prepared by Librarians Joyce Garczynski and Megan Browndorf contains background information, news and social media coverage, analysis and opinions as well as the official responses related to these events.
