Many say watching George Floyd’s final moments is traumatising – and so is the fight for racial justice.

The Derek Chauvin trial in Minneapolis is triggering fresh trauma for many Black Americans who have seen their pain televised in countless viral videos.

Recording of police brutality has led to action in cases like George Floyd’s but comes at an emotional cost for many.

The BBC’s Larry Madowo has been speaking to activists in Minneapolis about Black exhaustion and why the Black Lives Matter movement is also a heavy burden for them.

Produced by Larry Madowo, Koralie Barrau and Ian Cartwright.
