Mid Morning Mix // Communications// Community// Events// National News// International News// Education// Health// Politics // June 9, 2020


Tonya Swann Weber is a Black American woman living in Switzerland.

She attended the Black Lives Matter march in Zurich a week ago - one of the first marches in Switzerland to take place following the tragic killing of George Floyd by a police officer, in the US.

She talks through some of her own personal experience across the three continents that she's lived, as well as reactions and conversations she has had in the past few weeks.
