France's Assa Traore emerges as global figure in anti-racism movementUntil the death of her brother Adama in French police custody four years ago, Assa Traore had never been someone who campaigned for a cause. Today, the 35-year-old mother of three is an international figure in the fight against police violence and racism, thrust into the heart of the debate by the death in Minneapolis last month of George Floyd. "A reward for everything we have done in four years and which gives us strength for the future," Traore told AFP, dressed in her "Justice for Adama" t-shirt.
