This episode focuses on black lives and why they matter for all of us. First, an interview with Kentucky State Rep. Attica Scott who describes Breonna’s Law, legislation she filed in response to the police killing of Breonna Taylor in Louisville last March. She also talks of her hopes for building a movement of Kentuckians across the state who are working for racial justice and policies that build thriving communities everywhere. Then an interview from the archive with Affrilachian author and educator Crystal Wilkinson recorded just as Wilkinson’s novel “The Birds of Opulence” was coming out. Finally Pastor Edward Palmer calls on us to overcome racism through policy actions, a presentation from the January Kentucky Policy virtual conference.
