We Insist: NPR Timeline of Protest Songs

Protesters gather Tuesday near where Floyd died in police custody in Minneapolis. One of them displays Floyd’s final words, recalling those made famous by Eric Garner when he died in 2014 in New York City.

This series — titled We Insist, a nod to Max Roach’s 1960 protest album of the same name — attempts to document the songs and videos that will come to define the summer of 2020 and the months leading up to what will certainly be a contentious presidential election.
