06/17 - Black & the Blue (ENCORE)

What can be done to improve trust among the police and the public they serve?

In May, the U.S. Department of Justice announced its decision not to bring federal civil rights charges against two white police offers involved in the shooting death of an African-American male in Baton Rouge last summer. Alton Sterling’s shooting re-ignited a national debate on how law enforcement interacts with minority communities.

In February, Louisiana Public Square hosted a special town hall meeting to explore how Louisiana’s Capital City could productively move beyond these events and what can be done to improve trust among the police and the public they serve. This month, LPB presents an encore broadcast of “Black & the Blue” on Wednesday, June 28 at 7 p.m. on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE.

The panelists are:
• Fr. Rick Andrus, St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church, Together BR
• Darrell Basco, state president of Fraternal Order of Police
• Sharon Weston Broome, Mayor-President of Baton Rouge
• Rep. Ted James, D-Baton Rouge; Public Safety Task Force
• Stephanie Riegel; Greater Baton Rouge Business Report

LPB CEO, Beth Courtney; LSU Manship School of Mass Communication professor, Robert Mann; and Southern University Director of Alumni Affairs, Robyn Merrick, host the program.

Louisiana Public Square can also be heard on public radio stations WRKF in Baton Rouge; Red River Radio in Shreveport and Alexandria; and WWNO in New Orleans. Check their station websites for schedule.

Current Topic


     12/18 - News About the News (Encore)

How can viewers distinguish between fact and fake news and is social media blurring the difference?
According to the 2018 Louisiana Survey, when it comes to trusting news organizations, more Louisiana residents put their faith in local media than national media outlets. Despite that trust, only 36 percent of the state’s news consumers say local news deals fairly with both sides.

So, why is there so much mistrust of the news media? Where are consumers primarily getting their news? How can viewers distinguish between fact and fake news and is social media blurring the difference? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on a special encore presentation of “News about the News” airing Wednesday, December 26 at 7pm on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE.
