South Africa’s ruling party Africa National Congress (ANC) will on Friday launch an anti-racism campaign.
The move will be a show of solidarity with protests in the United States following the death of George Floyd.
Floyd, an African-American man, died in the custody of police after a police kneeled on his neck as he lay on the ground.
His death has led to protests across the cities in the United States.
The Black Friday campaign will call on South Africans to wear black on every Friday for an unspecified period.
The campaign will also highlight the police brutality in the country.
The campaign will be launched by President Cyril Ramaphosa.
Below is a statement posted by ANC on Twitter.
