“After 2020, who are we? 2020 is of historical significance defined by COVID-19, social protests ignited by the murder of George Floyd and an incendiary presidential election process. We are now on the brink in 2021, re-examining our past, challenging who we believe ourselves to be. How we deal with these events will affect generations to come.”
