In this episode of From The North, we look at the Black Lives Matter protests which are being held across the country and beyond.
They follow the death of George Floyd, a black man restrained by a white police officer in the US.
Campaigners stress that although the incident happened on the other side of the Atlantic it again highlights issues of racism every day closer to home.
ITV’s Tony Morris asks what these protests mean to those involved and can this momentum be capitalised on to bring about real change?
He is joined by protestor Reece Williams, race and equality researcher Rachel C. Boyle and Faye Bruce from the Caribbean and African Health Network.
