Anoa recaps some of the latest news coming out of Chicago including the recommended firing of officers involved in the Laquan McDonald murder. She gives an overview of the DOJ decision to end use of private prisons. A step in the right direction, it is only a drop in the bucket. Private prisons operate at the State level in large numbers. It also does not address the use of private contractors by DHS for immigration detention centers. Later in the conversation, Anoa speaks with Wendi Muse about #BlackBrazilSyllabus and #LochteGate. Wendi discusses her research on left/anti-racist activism and highlights the rich history of activism amongst Black Brazilians and more.
