Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Robin D.G. Kelley about the Black Struglle for Freedom.
The trial of Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd has unfolded on television screens across America, bringing up painful reminders of what happened on May 25th 2020, and unearthing new details about an incident that sparked a mass movement. It seems that on trial is not just one officer but all cops that have brutalized and/or killed people of color and especially Black Americans. Much depends on how this trial unfolds and what its outcome will be, but the conversation around policing in American can and should be even deeper.
