Ben Jealous and Charles Bethea On What Baltimore Needs To Heal
It's been 13 months since the uprising, following the funeral of Freddie Gray, gripped the city. Last October, Ben Jealous, the former head of the NAACP and a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, issued a report outlining what it will take for Baltimore to eliminate the trust gap between police and communities of color.
The Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture has declared this the "Year of the Black Male". Their latest exhibit Question Bridge: Black Males is a video installation in which black men convey the complexity of the black experience by posing and answering provocative questions.
Charles Bethea is the Chief Curator at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum. Ben Jealous and Charles Bethea join Tom in-studio to talk about solutions for Baltimore, local and national politics and how concerns about police misconduct have become a top priority for voters across the country.
