Upon these words the Black Press was founded.

Today, the Houston Defender Network will “LET THE PEOPLE BE HEARD,” opening the door to allow our community to post their 60-90 second videos. The death of Houstonian George Floyd has generated a range of emotions, opinion and perspectives that deserve to be heard. We invite you to share your response to the questions:

  • Why is the death of George Floyd different?
  • Where do we go from here?
  • How do we keep this tragedy from becoming just another hashtag?

To share your opinion and raise the consciousness and awareness of what you are thinking go to: bit.ly/hearthepeople_georgefloyd.

Watch messages from State Sen. Royce West, Crystal Hadnott, MS, CNS, and Ray Shackelford, president of the National Urban League Young Professionals.
