Darnella Frazier, teenager who filmed George Floyd’s murder, received a special Pulitzer with her head

The Pulitzer Prizes, administered and awarded by Columbia University for achievements in journalism, theater, music and photography, presented awards Friday to several prominent institutions and individuals. But one honor, in particular, stands out: The Pulitzer Board awarded a special mention to Darnella frazier, the then 17-year-old who used her mobile phone last May to record the then-police officer Derek Chauvin kneeling on George Floyd’s neck, killing him.

The Pulitzer ad said his award was “for bravely filming the murder of George Floyd, a video that sparked protests against police brutality around the world, highlighting the crucial role of citizens in the search for truth and justice. by journalists “.

During Chauvin’s murder trial, which included Frazier’s video as evidence, the young woman testified off-camera and “at times gave testimony through tears.” according to the Washington Post.

“When I look at George Floyd, me. [look at] My father, ” she said when asked how the video recording had affected his life. “I have a black father. I have a black brother. I have black friends. And I look at that and see how it could have been one of them. “

Special mentions and awards at the Pulitzers are not unheard of: Frazier makes the 45º, putting her in the company of extraordinary people like John Coltrane, George Gershwin, Ray Bradbury, EB White, Alex Haley, Hank Williams, Bob dylanand “the cartographers of the United States of America.”

This year’s Pulitzer winners include Robert Greene of the Los Angeles Times for editorial writing, Wesley morris of the New York Times for the critics (his second win), and Louise erdrich for fiction prize, for his novel The night watchman. The Associated Press won for breaking news photography and Minneapolis Tribune of the stars won for breaking news photography.

Film critic Amy taubin gave it its first award in the Best Movies of 2020 in Artforum to “the motion picture camera, practical and affordable for everyone”. He noted that “the most powerful footage of the year was not mediated by artists, but was broadcast raw from the cell phones of citizens like Darnella Frazier, who, by focusing their lenses on acts of injustice, have mobilized us against state power in numbers never seen before. “
