5. The Knee Felt Around the World: A Cry for the End of Racism in the US
Play • 59 min

In today's episode of "What's the buzz?" we decided to hold off on our usual entertainment type content in light of what has been going on in the U.S. We didn't feel comfortable continuing as usual without addressing the serious and important events currently taking place. This episode is a discussion about the Black Lives Matter movement, and our aim is to help educate people on the movement's goals and to share our thoughts on where we're at as a country. In this episode we talk about the recent deaths of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Abrey and George Floyd and how and why these tragic deaths have been the catalysts for the recent protests and the huge wave of social media responses. We also talk about the COVID-19 response to protests and share some book, movie, TV and podcast suggestions if you are looking to further educate yourself on racism and the black experience. We hope you find this episode useful and that you are staying safe and educated during these times. Special thanks to WPGU 107.1 for making this podcast possible.
