Episode details

This week’s podcast episode is a very Charleston episode. Sorry, not sorry.

While the police killing of George Floyd has set off protests and uprisings across the globe, we are seeing activism take root differently in different communities. In Charleston, South Carolina, it’s dredging up some recent history of police abuse and white supremacist terrorism.

My guest this week is Mika Gadsden, founder of the Charleston Activist Network. You can follow her on Twitter and Instagram at @mikagadsden, and follow the Charleston Activist Network on Instagram at @charlestonactivistnetwork. Her podcast Mic’d Up on Ohm Radio is essential listening for Charlestonians, and I recommend subscribing via iTunes or listening on Soundcloud.

Stay safe. Take care of each other. Talk to you next week.
