Your Call: How are the media reporting on issues of structural racism and gun control?
On the June 26th edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss the massacre at the historic AME church in Charleston, South Carolina. Dylann Roof, a 21-year-old white man who confessed to wanting to start a race war, killed nine black church members. How are the media reporting on issues of structural racism and gun control? We’ll be joined by the Washington Post’s Wesley Lowery, the Miami Herald's Leonard Pitts and the Nation’s Dani McClain. Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
