The Heat: Protests for racial justice in U.S.

The Heat

Protests and demands for racial justice in the United States continue with cities and states across the nation on edge.

Americans are demanding an end to racism and police violence. 

The outpouring of anger and emotion was sparked by the death of an unarmed African American man. George Floyd died after being pinned to the ground by a white police officer in Minneapolis over a week ago. 

While many of the protests and rallies have been peaceful, some have resulted in chaos. And President Donald Trump has called for the U.S. military to be introduced if cities and states can’t get things under control. 

To discuss:

  • Timothy Williams, fmr. Senior Detective Supervisor, LAPD
  • Paula Austin, Asst. Professor of History and Af. Am. Studies, Boston University
  • Calvin Dark, Co Founder RC Communications 
  • Sahar Aziz, Professor of Law at Rutgers University
