As protests continue across the country, we hear from two leading activists about why they think this moment is different. Social justice leader Tamika D. Mallory calls it a collision of multiple pandemics. She has been traveling the country speaking with victims’ families and speaking at rallies, marches, and protests. She reflects on what it all means to her, especially as a mother to a 21-year-old son. For Trae tha Truth, a rapper and longtime community activist in Houston, this moment has hit too close to home because George Floyd was his friend. Trae opens up about how he wanted to honor George and his family in a march that drew tens of thousands of people. The Window production of Gimlet Projects.
