We’ve gone through all the emotions,” Cloud said. “It’s been really heavy these last few weeks. It’s been really draining.”

What it will be now, Beal and Cloud pledge, is transformational.

“For eight minutes and 46 seconds,” Cloud told the assembled crowd, recalling the amount of time Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin put his knee on Floyd’s neck, “you saw our everyday life. For eight minutes and 46 seconds, y’all got a small slice of what we live every day.”

Chew on that a bit. Cloud is a WNBA champion. Beal is an NBA all-star. They spent time talking Friday — on the 155th anniversary of when black slaves in Texas were told they had been freed — about the absolute fear with which they live. It’s the kind of conversation we need to have. It’s the kind of feeling that must change.
