The anger and hurt felt by the black community over the murder of George Floyd by a police officer in Minneapolis is vast and has resonated into deep-seated injustices, sparking a wave of protests that have continued for days.

Today, we gather local black voices to hear about how they’re feeling about the week’s events, how they’re discussing them with the people and congregants in their lives and what they hope to see in the future. 

We want to hear from the black community about the conversations you’re having. Call us at 866-893-5722.

Pastor J. Edgar Boyd, senior minister of the First African Methodist Episcopal Church of Los Angeles, a 148-year-old institution
