Darnella Frazier, who recorded the death of George Floyd, was awarded a special citation by the Pulitzer Prizes on Friday.

Chauvin was later convicted of murder.

The Pulitzer Prizes announced that Frazier was cited “for courageously recording the murder of George Floyd, a video that spurred protests against police brutality, around the world, highlighting the crucial role of citizens in journalists’ quest for truth and justice.”

On the one-year anniversary of Floyd’s death, Frazier posted about the incident on Instagram. In her post, she said, “Even though this was a traumatic life-changing experience for me, I’m proud of myself. If it weren’t for my video, the world wouldn’t have known the truth. I own that. My video didn’t save George Floyd, but it put his murderer away and off the streets.”
