Phillip Thompson of the Idaho Black History Museum is planning an event to stand in solidarity, but wants to ensure it's done safely and responsibly during the pandemic.

Heated debate over justice in America in the shadow of the death of George Floyd continues to boil over in many of the nation’s cities.
