In 2014, Eric Garner and Mike Brown Jr were killed in police violence, that was recorded on smartphones. They shaped the Ferguson uprising against Police Brutalities. It continues till today, where police brutalities continue to be recorded: the latest example,George Floyd. Have smartphones and social media advanced the cause of Black Americans? We take a look. #BlackLivesMatter #BlackAmericans #GeorgeFloyd #RodneyKing #Minneapolis
