Black Lives Matter

Found this podcast in a resource list after George Floyd’s murder. I didn’t do the work when this happened a few years ago but I’m learning and educating myself now. Thanks for the reporting #blacklivesmatter #blm

Good flow, sad story.

I was not looking forward to this one but felt it needed to be heard. I’m glad I listened, though the story is frustrating and sad and makes you feel that justice has not been served. Which is the point.
