In this episode, we discuss the police brutality and oppression that black people face in America and how a Sacramento resident, D-D-A Ponte, is organizing meditation gatherings in front of the California State Capitol amidst protests. We also discuss the life of Charles Brunson, the founder of the Sacramento Black Panther chapter and the relevancy today of his same dedication to uniting humanity. From cancelling rent for Americans during the pandemic, first time college freshman attending virtually this fall, to student homeless and Sacramento States resources for these students, we cover a range of topics in this weeks episode.
