Your Call: What’s it like to be a black man in the United States?

Sep 22, 2015

On the September 22nd edition of Your Call, we’ll speak with D. Watkins, author of “The Beast Side: Living and Dying While Black in America."

Watkins believes as innocent black men and women are killed on a regular basis, newspapers should print daily death counts with photos and causalities, like they do during wartime because for black America, this is war. How should we combat this national crisis? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guest:

D. Watkins, professor at Coppin State University, regular contributor to Salon.com, and author of "The Beast Side: Living and Dying While Black in America"
