‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW FOR APRIL 30, 2021-International Panel: Police Killings and Torture of Blacks in the U.S. are “Crimes Against Humanity”…Plus More Headlines

An international panel finds that police violence and murders of African Americans amount to crimes against humanity. And for family members of those slain, the conviction of Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd is just the tip of the iceberg of accountability. We devote the hour to the April 27, 2021 press conference of the International Commission of Inquiry on Systemic Racist Police Violence against People of African Descent in the United States. Plus Lydia Curtis covers birthday celebration for Mumia Abu-Jamal

Voices: Philonise Floyd, brother of George Floyd; Gwen Carr, mother of Eric Garner; Collette Flanagan, founder of Mothers Against Police Brutality; Kerry McLean; Lennox Hinds; Max Boqwana; Bert Samuels; Professor Marjorie Cohn
