While history books will largely remember 2020 as the year of a global pandemic, it was also the year that Americans began to truly embrace the Black Lives Matter movement. The murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor – and most recently the verdict in the shooting of Jacob Blake – brought about an outpouring of support in a year where there were only 18 days when police did not kill someone. We turn the page on 2020 on Sea Change Radio by revisiting two of our discussions about the black experience in this country. First, we hear from Castle Redmond, a managing director at the California Endowment as he talks about growing up Black in the Bay Area in the seventies. Then, a conversation with Maurice Plaines about the relationship between police and Black America.
