South Africa’s ruling African National Congress (ANC) will on Friday launch an anti-racism campaign.

It will be a show solidarity with protests in the US that were sparked by the death of African-American George Floyd in police custody last month.

The Black Friday campaign will call on South Africans to wear black every Friday for an unspecified period. It will also highlight the racism and police brutality in South Africa.

The campaign will be launched by President Cyril Ramaphosa, the party said in a statement posted on Twitter:
