2.14.2022: #RolandMartinUnfiltered: Liberia's 200th, Bridgeport Families want DOJ's help, Black Women & Heart Health, Black Equity
The families of two black women found dead in Bridgeport, Connecticut, are demanding the mayor take action. Lauren Smith-Fields and Brenda Lee Rawls both died on the same December day, and both investigations were so bad the two detectives who were in charge of them have been suspended. With no faith in the local police department, the families want the Department of Justice to step in. Attorney Darnell Crosland is here to give us an update.
In Georgia, opening statements in the hate crime trial of the three white men who killed Ahmaud Arbery began today.
Ya'll remember the school that had the petition to bring slavery back? Well, one of the teachers at the same school has been suspended for using the N-word in class.
Plus, a black man in Kentucky has filed a racial profiling lawsuit for a traffic stop he says would not have happened if he were a white man.
Racial equity. What is it, and will we ever achieve it. We'll be joined by a Cultural Architect who will shed some light on the topic.
And, it's heart health awareness month. In our Fit, Live, Win segment, we'll talk about Black women and keeping a healthy heart.
