WNYC teamed up with public radio stations in St. Louis and Baltimore for a multi-city, many-voiced special program on race, community, and policing. We invited police officers, protestors, public officials, and callers in cities across the country to discuss what's changed in the past year and how to shape the road ahead.
During the original broadcast, #RadioTalksRace became a trending topic in New York City and in St. Louis. Check out what was said - and join the ongoing conversation - using the hashtag #RadioTalksRace.
