The recent police shootings of two black men – Philando Castile and Alton Sterling – followed by the shootings of five Dallas police officers, have reignited national conversations around policing, the Black Lives Matter movement, and gun violence in the U.S. To discuss the impact of these events on our country moving forward, we’re joined by Jamil Smith, Senior National Correspondent for MTV News. We also continue our summer reading series with Shaka Senghor, author of the New York Times Bestseller, Writing My Wrongs: Life, Death, and Redemption in an American Prison.
