2013: The community organizers Opal Tometi, Patrisse Cullors, and Alicia Garza started the Black Lives Matter movement.

Now, after the death of George Floyd, at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer, and a week of nationwide protests to an extent unseen in a half century, Black Lives Matter is once again the biggest story in the country.
