Black Lives Matter co-founder Opal Tometi

Over the past year the Black Lives Matter movement went global, with protests against racial injustice taking place in over 60 countries. Katty and Carlos speak to co-founder of the movement, Opal Tometi, about the roots of the organisation, its goals, and what its priorities are for 2021. We hear some of the criticisms levelled at the movement, asking what has been achieved by the high-profile protests which have taken place across America, and reflect on its influence on civil rights activism around the world, exploring the movement's role in tackling issues beyond police brutality.
