Rev Al Sharpton praises BLM hero Patrick Hutchinson, and says he’d like to meet him


“Get your knees off our necks” – the passionate words of the civil rights leader, the Reverend Al Sharpton, in his eulogy to George Floyd after he was killed by a white police officer in Minneapolis last month.

The Rev. Sharpton told mourners George Floyd would be turned into “the cornerstone of a movement that would change the world”.

We asked him what he made of the reaction that has poured out across the world.
