Can we do that? Yes we can, if we choose to.
Actress Lorren Cotton sat down to talk about her experience as a black woman in America, how racism shows up in her life, how it has shown up in her life, how it shows up in our school systems, in workplaces, on the streets, in the entertainment industry, and of course in our legal and policing systems.
We can choose to have these conversations surrounding black lives, and with black voices.
