Black America Speaks: Chicago

We listen in as WVON in Chicago talks about the impact of George Floyd's death.

We continue our Black America Speaks series, where we are playing extracts from black-owned radio stations across the United States as they discuss race with their audiences. Today, we hear from WVON in Chicago. One of the topics of conversation is the concern around the levels of shootings in the city.

Wearing face coverings is a topic of conversation on the Coronavirus that we will reflect. President Trump appears to have changed his view on it. We’ll hear if his supporters agree with him.

And we speak to one of our expert guests, Dr Emma Hodcroft from the University of Basel in Switzerland. She has been tweeting about face coverings and also her concern about the increasing infections in parts of the world, including Switzerland.
