(SINGING) No justice, no peace. No justice, no peace. No justice--

TERRENCE FLOYD: No justice, no peace. When I first heard that, I thought violence. That's what I was thinking before. But now is the narrative of us as Black African-Americans are a significant part of this country. So we don't have no peace, nobody has it.

Name is Terrence Floyd. My brother, the late George Floyd, who you all know. He sparked the international movement that's needed in this world. The death of my brother kind of woke up-- I want to say woke up the ancestors and us. I'm using my Floyd musical ability to reach people in his name, because his heartbeat is not beating no more, but I can beat for him.

(SINGING) No justice, no peace. No justice, no peace. No justice, no peace. No justice, no peace. No justice, no peace. No justice, no peace. No justice, no peace. No justice--

KEVIN MCCALL: So this is a [INAUDIBLE] approach to getting the voices of the voiceless and documenting that by recording it. Our folks have been coming to protest with their antenna rings, with their drums, with their cymbals. Marching bands have been joining protests screaming no justice, no peace. No justice, no peace-- what it simply means is that you can't get one without the other.

(SINGING) When do we want it? Right now.

TERRENCE FLOYD: We say no justice, no peace-- N-O justice, N-O peace. But we have to K-N-O-W justice, K-N-O-W peace. We have to know it. We have to know it.
