Holding Court with Eboni K. Williams

Election day has passed, but we’re still just beginning the work to fix our democracy and build a more equitable America. Eboni and Dustin discuss the moment including the coveted Black male swing vote, and WTF was up with Lil Wayne, Ice Cube, 50 Cent and Kodak Black co-sign of Trump? 

Legal headlines on The Docket this week include Mel B and Eddie Murphy child support case, the latest on Dr. Dre and Nicole Young’s divorce case, and the shocking lawsuit by a Louisville police officer who killed Breonna Taylor.  

Special guest US Rep. Cedric Richmond of Louisiana's 2nd Congressional District joins the conversation to clarify 2018 Jobs and Justice Bill legislation introduced from the Congressional Black Caucus versus recent proposals from the Trump Administration’s Platinum Plan and Ice Cube’s Contract with Black America. Congressman Richmond also drops knowledge about lesser known positive programs of the infamous 1994 Crime Bill, including authorization for “pattern or practice” investigations for police misconduct and grants for preventing violence against women.

And Eboni shares a personal story about how the judicial system needs more “pretrial diversion programs” for giving young people a second chance rather than a criminal record.
