Interview/Discussion:
Louisiana Public Square: Black & The Blue
The shooting of an African-American male in Baton Rouge by two white police officers re-ignited a national debate on how law enforcement interacts with minority communities. Nationwide demonstrations were marred by the ambush of 12 white officers in Dallas and the killing of three members of law enforcement in Baton Rouge. This special explores ways to improve the trust among police and the public they serve. Producers for Louisiana Public Square are Kevin Gautreaux and Kelly Connelly Spires. LPB President & CEO Beth Courtney, LSU Manship School of Mass Communication professor Robert Mann, and Southern University Director of Alumni Affairs Robyn Merrick hosted this episode.
