In 2020 BlackPast.org saw the largest number of deaths in a single year of people profiled on the website. Part of this was due to the COVID-19 pandemic but most people who died last year did not succumb to the disease. Some like George Floyd died at the hands of the police. Others like Kobe Bryant died in tragic accidents. You see below photos of those we lost. Click on the photo and you will be taken to their BlackPast.org profile.
