The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts will dim its lights starting Tuesday for nine nights to mark the final nine minutes of George Floyd’s life.
The Centre says it’s also working on strategies for greater collaboration with black artists, audiences and communities.
Floyd died last week after Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin pressed his knee into Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes, continuing after Floyd had stopped moving and was pleading for air.
