Race and Ethnicity reporter Teran Powell hosts a virtual roundtable discussion with local community and political leaders to give some context to this week's protests. Then, we hear a special edition of NPR’s podcast Code Switch, which examines the country’s reaction to the death of George Floyd and other African Americans at the hands of police. Plus, a poem about white privilege.
