Winters, co-hosts of the In Our Own Defense Podcast, are joined by two science driven providers Dr. Michelle Dennis and Dr. Leanne Fowler to discuss these different perspectives and accurate resources to consider in your vaccine decision.

Winters interview nursing scholars Dr. Michelle Dennis and Dr. Leanne Fowler who answer questions about how the vaccine was developed, its effectiveness against COVID-19 and its variants, the side effects of the vaccine, and the disparities that contribute to lower vaccine rates in people of color.

What Will Happen to Them?
In Our Own Defense co-hosts Dr. Dolores Tarver and Attorney A.D. Winters are on location at Mason Temple, the National Headquarters of the Church of God in Christ in Memphis, TN discussing Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s final speech on economic empowerment and community investment. “The question is not, if I stop to help this man in need, what will happen to me? The question is, if I do not stop to help the sanitation workers, what will happen to them? That’s the question.”
Investing in Us
In Our Own Defense co-hosts Dr. Dolores Tarver and Attorney A.D. Winters are on location at the Lorraine Motel—National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, TN discussing the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We encourage you to consider the significance of this hotel not as just the place of Dr. King’s assassination, but as a representation of the type of economic empowerment that Dr. King encouraged in the black community. The hotel was purchased by a Walter Bailey, a black man business owner, in 1945. “Now these are some practical things that we can do. We begin the process of building a greater economic base. Be concerned about your brother. You may not be on strike. But either we go up together, or we go down together.”

Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff and undermine Congress certifying Joe Biden as the president elect, protestors stormed the Capitol. In Our Own Defense Podcast co-hosts Dr. Dolores Tarver and Attorney A.D. Winters unpack the politics.
