After the Shootings

Jul 11, 2016


Snipers in Dallas killed five police officers Thursday night, the deadliest attack on law enforcement since September 11th. The shooting occurred at the end of a protest following the fatal shootings of African-American men by police in Louisiana and Minnesota. What does this shooting mean for the Black Lives Matter movement? How does the path forward look for those calling for police reform? Professors Karsonya Wise Whitehead and Lawrence Brown join us to discuss what Dallas means for the future of protests. And Baltimore Police Lt. Kenneth Butler, president of a local group for black police officers, shares his reaction to last week’s violence.
