About this Episode:
George Floyd’s murder was one blow too many in a 400-year history of callous and inhumane treatment of Black Americans. It sparked international outrage and to date, roughly 130 U.S. states, cities, and counties have declared racism a public health emergency. But what does an emergency really mean for an injustice that has been ongoing for centuries? That’s what we explore in this first episode of our new series.
