Sisters Chat is back and have we got a great show planned for you! Over the last several months, there have been several high-profile police incidents involving the death of young black men including the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, the 45-year-old homeless man killed by LAPD last month, the death of Eric Garner who died as a result of police using a choke hold, and most recently, the forceful arrest of UVA student Martese Johnson who was left beaten and bloodied on the sidewalk outside a bar near campus. These are only a few of the recent violent confrontations between black males and police.
The deaths of these men, the call for investigations and seemingly no one being held accountable for the taking of innocent lives, a new battle cry has arisen in the continue fight for justice and equal civil rights. The battle cry, “Black Lives Matter,” has been heard in rallies from California to New York City and many cities in between.
The Sisters Chat panel will talk about the “Black Lives Matter” movement, what it means to our communities and if there will be a new crop of black leaders that emerge from this new threat.
Join us on Wed., March 25 at 6 p.m. for Sisters Chat only on Stovall & Hoggard Communications Network on blogtalk radio. Call to join the conversation at 1-914-338-1541.
