Following weeks of widespread demonstrations, with protestors calling for an end to police brutality and systemic racism, we look at whether this moment in history will lead to the change and reforms people are hoping for. In this episode of #VOAOurVoices, our reporters take you inside the tumultuous demonstrations that shook cities in the U.S. and other parts of the world. We’ll bring you the story of an African mother whose son died in a hail of police bullets. And, a Kenyan rights activist talks to us about addressing police brutality and inequality in African countries.
