Dr. King once said: “A riot is the language of the unheard.” Indeed, nowadays, a riot is often the language of the continually oppressed, unheard citizens who are still not afforded the same general rights as their white counterparts, and when protesting these injustices—all too often with the backdrop of a member of their community unjustifiably slain by a police officer—they are met with over-militarized force as an ever-presiding reminder of why they are having to protest in the first place. This episode features Larry Hamm, Dr. Cornel West, Rosa Clemente and Elizabeth Nix, plus lyrical and music contributions by Silent Knight and The Band Called FUSE.
