Roland Martin Show Audio Podcast: Rae Lewis-Thornton


Rae Lewis-Thornton joined Roland Martin on “The Roland Martin Show” to discuss Black AIDS Day 2015 and the importance of testing and early treatment of the virus that causes HIV/AIDS.

Rae Lewis-Thornton is an Emmy Award winning AIDS Activist. She rose to national acclaim when she told her story of living with HIV/AIDS in a cover story to Essence Magazine. In the past 22 years, she has traveled worldwide in an unending crusade in the fight against HIV/AIDS. 

During the Roland Martin Show, Thornton stressed the importance of early detection and continuing treatment once diagnosed with the deadly virus.

Police around the country are going on asset seizure “shopping sprees” and creating shopping lists of items that they want. The laws allow police to confiscate cars, money and other items without ever charging anyone with a crime. Lauren Victoria Burke spoke with Martin during “The Roland Martin Show” to discuss this insane practice of cops taking your stuff and forcing you to prove where it come from before you get it back.

What African American stories would you like to see on the big or small screen told from the lens of the Black Experience? Martin takes your calls on this topic and more in this edition of “The Roland Martin Show” on the Empowerment Radio Network.
