COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – In June we started “The Conversation” to bring attention to racial injustice. Now six months later, we are continuing our commitment to tackling difficult discussions.
NBC4 aired its sixth installment of “The Conversation” on Thursday, Dec. 10 at 7:30 p.m. The special was hosted by NBC4 anchors Darlene Hill, Kerry Charles and Matt Barnes.
The NBC4 broadcast addressed the recent shooting of Casey Goodson Jr. by a Franklin County deputy, and the vote to create a Community Review Board overseeing the Columbus Division of Police.
The episode also discussed the alarming rise of young Black people attempting suicide.
Also, we revisited some of the people we spoke with in our first special to gauge how far we have come since this summer’s protests.
The show included a look at “Kamala Pride.” Viewers will see how the vice president-elect is an inspiration, as the first person of color, and woman, to be elected to the office.
