"Up there, he is happy to participate in the movement"

His son was shot while he was jogging , a few kilometers from the house where he grew up. The face of the young man aged only 25 then invaded the screens and his story fueled the mobilization that seized the country, even more since the death of George Floyd a few months later.

"I think that my son is in heaven and that up there, he is happy to participate in the movement", adds Ahmaud Arbery's mother. His name, like that of George Floyd , and many others before them, resonates in the demonstrations.

"When we were kids, we all got along well, blacks and whites, and there was never a problem," says Akeem Becker, his childhood friend. “But as you grow up, you become aware of certain things, and then a kind of separation begins,” he continues, while in the American South, ordinary racism has been part of the background of their childhood.

"Ahmaud and I have talked a lot about racism, but he never imagined that his life would come to an end like this."

But that’s not what Black Lives Matter is about.
