Documenting a Reckoning

The Murder of George Floyd

Exhibit flier for Documenting a ReckoningThe death of George Floyd at the knee of a police officer brought demonstrations and protests that swept the Twin Cities — and the world — at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. It inspired photojournalists and other photographers to create images with lasting impact. It motivated some to pick up a camera for the first time.

This exhibit brings 54 of those images together to help create a broader sense of the influence of these events on our lives, as documented by professional, community, and student photographers representing diverse viewpoints.

This exhibit is presented by the Hubbard School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota.

Exhibit opening – Wednesday, Nov. 17

An exhibit opening event takes place on Nov. 17, from 5 to 7:30 p.m., with a program at 6 p.m., where the photographers will discuss their work and mingle with attendees. Additional events surrounding the exhibit will be announced in the coming weeks.

Register to attend the event at Elmer L. Andersen Library, sponsored by the Hubbard School of Journalism and the University Libraries.
