Heel Talk

Jun 8, 2020

Protests have erupted across the United States following the killing of George Floyd, an unarmed Black man, by Minneapolis police officers. Activists are calling for an end to police brutality toward Black Americans. Locally, protests have occurred in Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill in response to George Floyd’s death. On this episode of Heel Talk, host Evely Forte talks to three DTH journalists — Chase Cofield, Maydha Devarajan and Claire Perry — to discuss what activism, in the midst of a pandemic, looks like and how community members feel about the national conversation moving forward. This episode was co-edited and co-produced by Evely Forte and Meredith Radford. Reporting by Chase Cofield, Maydha Devarajan and Claire Perry.
