Introduction

Generally speaking on African Elements, when it comes to content I didn’t produce I generally will post a link and drive traffic to the producer (which I am doing in this case above), but in addition to that I am posting that content in a slightly altered format because I believe it will be of value to educators and those fostering discussion around the recent police shootings of African American civilians and the shootings of police in Dallas. In this two-part discussion with Tavis Smiley and historian and UCLA professor, Robin D. G. Kelley and Attorney, Connie Rice, Smiley covers quite a bit of ground including policing across race and class, the role of protest in the black lives matter movement, Obama’s response, and the political implications on the upcoming election. The alternative format provided here at African Elements has bookmarked those various topics allowing those fostering conversations to search within the video to jump to particular areas of focus. Additionally, using the search menu it is also possible to search within the video and jumped to specific key terms of interest.
