image002.png

On January 6, 2021, much  of the  social media community  posted how vastly different the Capitol Insurrection rioters were treated  than the Black Lives Matter Protesters from previous events.   Join the Reginald F. Lewis Museum in a Talks and Thoughts Conversation conversing on race disparities, law enforcement and politics when dealing with Black Lives Matter Protests and other protests organized by white militia groups or domestic terrorists. 

Panel presenters will include civil rights activist DeRay Mckesson,  University of Baltimore law professor and author Michael Higginbotham,  Johns Hopkins historian and legal scholar Martha S. Jones,  retired Anne Arundel County Police Commander TJ Smith and Maurice Davis, Director of Security at the University of Maryland Medical Center.  This discussion will be moderated by Dr. Kaye Whitehead radio host of WEAA’s Today with Dr. Kaye and  Loyola University professor of communications and African American Studies.
