9.1.2022 #RolandMartinUnfiltered: Jackson Water Crisis, $325M lawsuit against AT&T, BLM's Future, Blacks & Racism, Jamarion Robinson
The water crisis in Mississippi's state capitol continues. Tonight, Roland talks to Chokwe Antar Lumumba, the mayor of Jackson, to find out how much longer the city will be with little to no water.
Jamarion Robinson was shot at least 59 times by two Georgia officers in 2016. His mother's initial lawsuit got thrown out. But a federal appeals court ruled a lawsuit against the officers who killed him could move forward because sovereign immunity did not extend to shooting an unconscious suspect. Jamarion's mother and her attorney will give us an update.
AT&T gets hit with a $325 million lawsuit by a Georgia businessman who accuses the media company of stealing his business plan. We'll talk to the two black men who are taking on AT&T.
Black Lives Matter Grassroots is looking toward the future. I'll be speaking with one of the organization's leaders who is reclaiming the name and the Black Lives Matter mission.
How much progress have we made when it comes to reducing racism? The Pew Research Center just released a new study, and many Black Americans believe key U.S. institutions need rebuilding to ensure fair treatment. We'll break that down.
And President Joe Biden will be speaking primetime tonight to discuss the "battle for the soul of the nation."
