Real Talk: Black Minds Matter
Ep.2: The 411 on the 5-O
Show Notes

This podcast will discuss how police brutality disproportionately affects Black people and people of color, the link between experiences of police brutality and the collateral mental health affects. In this episode, co-hosts Andrea Brown and Nia Jones discuss what we need to teach our sons and daughters (and ourselves) if we are stopped by the police, what to expect, and what we should do. This is the REAL 411 on the 5-0!
