Approximately 57 years later, people will return to the same site in Washington, D.C. to march against police brutality. The march is entitled Commitment March: Get Your Knee off Our Necks. The term “get your knee off our necks” is a reference to the death of George Floyd, an unarmed Black man that was killed by a police officer who knelt on his neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds.
