Tamika Mallory says if there is one thing she would like people to do, it is to say "I'm not going to do nothing in this moment."

Tamika Mallory's 'State of Emergency' highlights that while progress has been made in the fight against racial injustice, we still have a long way to go.

On the one year anniversary of the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer, Mallory tells us what she believes must be done to continue moving that fight in the right direction.
