Savanta published a 2020 poll for CNN on the Black Lives Matter movement in the UK helping them win the National Association of Black Journalists Television Salute to Excellence award in the Network, within the International category.
The distinguished award recognizes journalism and communications that best cover the Black experience and communicates the issues affecting Black communities worldwide. The entries were judged on content, creativity, use of the medium, innovation and relevance to people or issues of the Black Diaspora.
Savanta was recognizes through the content that was sent in, with our data revealing “how sharply the nation is divided along race lines” (Nima Elbagir, Senior International Correspondent). Black people are twice as likely as white people (29%) to say they have not been treated with respect by the police. Black people are significantly more likely than white people to say that the party in power, the Conservatives, is institutionally racist.
Our polling additionally found that black people are more than twice as likely to support the removal of statues by processes as white people (28%) and almost three-times as likely to say that the British empire as a whole, was a bad thing.
HERE is the full video submitted for the judging where you are able to see CNN’s entire footage with data integrated in-between powerful interviews.
