We remember the murder of George Floyd just two years ago -- a killing that sparked a movement and a global reckoning on police brutality and racial injustice. Biden is set to mark the date with an executive order on police reform. Toluse Olorunnipa has co-written a new biography, "His Name Is George Floyd," and discusses how Floyd’s story reflects troubling and pervasive truths about America.
