Tensions ran high this week as we all awaited the decision of 12 Minneapolis jurors in the Derek Chauvin murder trial. On Tuesday, Chauvin was found guilty of the murder of George Floyd. There was a collective sigh of relief from many in the African American community that this time justice was served, followed quickly by the acknowledgement that this does not end the problem of police violence against African American men. Join us for a special 2-hour edition of Another View where we provide analysis of the trial, sentencing of Chauvin, and potential policy changes in policing in our nation. We also discuss self-care for Black men, hear how they are processing and dealing with trauma, and gain insight on how we must all work together for change. Our guests include Dr. Eric Claville, Director of the Center for African American Public Policy at Norfolk State University; Dr. Wil LaVeist, author, speaker and multi-media consultant; award winning author and literary contributor Jeffrey Blount; community activist Bill Thomas; and Joe Dillard, External and Government Affairs with HRT and Commissioner with Norfolk Redevelopment and Housing Authority.
