Street Politicians

On the heels of another police shooting of an innocent black man, Jacob Blake, join Tamika D. Mallory and Mysonne “General” from Louisville, Kentucky, where the pair have relocated temporarily to put unprecedented pressure on local authorities to arrest the officers who killed Breonna Taylor in March. The episode, taped just days after Mysonne and others were released from jail for protesting and demanding justice for Breonna, gives viewers a rare opportunity to get up close and personal as the Street Politicians take us behind the scenes from their own living room. Joined by their fellow founders of the Until Freedom movement, Linda Sarsour and Angelo Pinto, Esq. Tamika and Mysonne share their insight into the controversial case, and why they decided to leave their homes and families to move to Louisville until the police who killed Breonna are arrested.

Also on this episode, the Street Politicians discuss the 4-day BreonnaCon conference they organized in Breonna’s name to help uplift the community of Louisville in the face of so much racism and hatred; The NBA players protest; and, the untimely death of actor Chadwick Boseman, who shocked the world when he passed away from colon cancer.
