Dialogue: Race & Police – Healing the Divide

March 9, 2021

Decades of complaints of police bias and brutality against people of color came to a head in 2020 with the deaths of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Casey Goodson and Andre Hill.

Demanding change, protesters flooded the streets of downtown Columbus and many suburban city centers. Columbus city officials promised reform and voters approved independent oversight of the police.

Join us for Dialogue as we look at where those promised reforms stand and examine efforts to heal the divide between the police and people of color.

Our panelists for this program were Columbus minster Jeffery Kee, veteran Ohio police officer Angel Tucker and former police chief Kim Jacobs. WOSU News Content Director Mike Thompson will moderate the conversation.
