Justin Terrell is an executive director of Council for Minnesotans of African Heritage.
For many people, the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis was the latest graphic instance of a Black American being killed by the police -- and his homicide the most recent national example of historic, institutional discrimination against people of color and indigenous groups. Our colleagues at Call to Mind -- an APM / MPR initiative to inform and mobilize new conversations about mental health -- recently put a spotlight on the trauma of Black Americans and how it intersects with policing. Today, we're sharing the panelists' important conversations with you. Thank you to: - Angela Davis, host of MPR News with Angela Davis on Minnesota Public Radio.
