Remembering Tamir Rice six years after he was killed by police
Police in America keep killing young Black people, years after what happened to Tamir Rice.
Early this year, USA TODAY talked to dozens of teenagers about growing up Black in Tamir Rice’s America. They’re all turning 18 years old in 2020, the same age Tamir Rice — who was shot and killed by police at age 12 — should have turned this June.
In this podcast, we're bringing back our episode from June, "Teenagers reflect on growing up Black in Tamir Rice's America." We hope it reminds listeners of what Tamir’s legacy means for our country six years after his death. In addition to hearing from Black teenagers, we also hear from Tamir Rice's mother, Samaria Rice, who is fighting to advance legal and policy changes to the criminal justice system.
