We sat down with longtime human rights lawyer Nicole Lee about the Black Movement-Law Project, which is an organization of Black Lawyers who are on the ground developing infrastructure and strategies for dealing with police terrorism.

Lee who is the former President of Trans Africa talked to us about how some of the hot spots like Ferguson and Baltimore compared the hotspots she witnessed overseas.. She noted they aren’t far apart and in some cases, what we are seeing here in the US is worse.

Later in the show we speak with Makani Themba of the Praxis Institute who gives us an indepth history lesson as she reminds us about key policies and events that took place in the 1980s and how they are shaping policy and activities today.
