Only the civically comatose could have missed the massive demonstration of outrage at the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and Eric Garner in New York City.  Here in Minnesota, the demonstrations have been large, creative, interracial, often youth-led,  and non-violent.   Some observers say we are seeing the birth of a new civil rights movement.

The demonstrations, organized by groups like Black Lives Matter, will continue.  But what else will it take to really address the problem?  Better police training?  New systems of police accountability?  Changes in the “rules of engagement” governing police interaction in potentially violent situations?  A more diverse police force?  A renewed focus on building healthy police-community relationships?

Tune in as Truth to Tell explores what can be done—and in some cases is being done—with two guests who have been working hard on these issues: Jason Sole, author of From Prison to PhD, and Dua Saleh, president of the St. Paul chapter of the Youth and Collegiate Branch of the NAACP.
