High-profile confrontations between African-Americans and police officers have fueled tensions across the country. West Virginia is NOT a place where people are comfortable talking about these things.
But in Trey’s hometown of Charleston, some of the key players are now bringing this tension out into the open.
On this week’s episode of the “Us & Them” podcast: the story of an effort to change tense perceptions between police and the black community by bringing that tension out into the open.
From West Virginia Public Broadcasting and PRX, this is “Us & Them,” the podcast where we tell the stories about America’s cultural divides.
