The protests against police brutality and systemic racism have risen to a level that we haven’t seen since the 1960’s civil rights movement and the rebellions that spread across the country.

Orlando Bailey of BridgeDetroit spoke with two supporters of the demonstrations: Tristan Taylor, organizer of the group “Detroit Will Breathe,” and longtime Detroit activist Carolyn Baker.

This segment is a part of American Black Journal and BridgeDetroit’s collaboration presenting a series of reports on issues threatening the lives of people of color and the groups advocating to protect them.
