A man walks past a mural depicting George Floyd, Sunday in Los Angeles. Floyd died in Minneapolis on May 25 after he was pinned at the neck by a police officer.

The news cycle continues to expose how America contends with racism: racial disparity in COVID-19 infections and deaths, the murder of Ahmed Aubrey, the police killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, the protests, and the president’s tweets.

Tonight, WNYC and Minnesota Public Radio are producing a special program. America: Are We Ready: A National Call-In about Racism, Violence, and our Future Together is a two-hour call-in show that convenes a national conversation about racism and the election. Hosted by WNYC's Kai Wright with Brian Lehrer, including guests Angela Davis from Minnesota Public Radio and Tanzina Vega from The Takeaway, and more. 

It is WSHU's mission to serve our community with comprehensive, fact-based news as well as meaningful opportunities to share information, opinions, ideas and respectful discourse. We hope you will join us for this timely, important and imperative national discussion.

America: Are We Ready can be heard tonight, 8-10 pm, on WSHU News-Talk stations: 89.9 FM, 103.3 FM, 105.7 FM, 1260 AM and via streaming.
