In the days after the killing of George Floyd, Ron Johnson wrestled with emotions he had long suppressed. He was angry, scared and sad.
The Best Buy videographer reflected back on times in his own life when he, like far too many of his fellow Black Americans, had experienced the ugliness of racism and social injustice.
Ron decided to process his feelings through his art, creating a documentary called “Notes from My Skin.” It’s a collection of raw, personal stories from Black employees at Best Buy.
The film addresses police brutality, systemic racism and the trauma Black people hold from witnessing the killings that all too frequently occur. Through first-hand accounts, the film explores how these pivotal moments have shaped who they are today.
