Clayola Brown, President of the A. Philip Randolph Institute for racial equality, spoke with NewsOne Now guest host Mo Ivory about the impact police brutality, police violence, and instances of unexplained Black death is having on the African-American community.
Ivory alluded to the angst that many in the Black community are feeling as a result of the police shooting deaths and death in custody cases involving African-American men and women, saying, “It takes a mental toll. Parents are worried about their children, people are nervous when they see a police car.”
“What should Black people do with their stress behind all that is going on in this country?” Brown said. “People must be able to talk openly and clearly about what they’re feeling, what they’re thinking, and to look for some sort of resolution.”
Gospel singer Anthony Brown stopped by NewsOne Now to talk about his new album, Everyday Jesus.
