Race Unwrapped: When to protest the use of the word 'riot'

Mindy Fulner

Riots. Protests. Uprisings. Even insurrections. 

Each conjures up different images and feelings, doesn’t it?

On this episode, I sit down to discuss that very thing with Dr. Ricky Jones from the University of Louisville’s Pan-African Studies department. 

We talk about how when Black people and Black allies come together to protest injustice, no matter how peaceful the protests, it almost always still gets characterized as a riot.

Michelle Tyrene Johnson is the lead producer of LPM’s talk shows, and she is also the host and producer of LPM’s podcast Race Unwrapped. Email Michelle at mjohnson@lpm.org.
