On the next American Black Journal, Stephen leads a wide-ranging discussion with our roundtable guests. They debate the 22.5-year prison sentence handed down to former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin in the murder of George Floyd. Was it enough time or too much?

Plus, they talk about the disastrous flooding in the Detroit-area caused by heavy rains and how it disproportionately affected people of color.
