racial justice


On the September 10th edition of Your Call, we’ll talk about the new documentary 3 ½ Minutes, Ten Bullets. The film tells the story of Jordan Davis, an unarmed black 17 year-old shot to death after a dispute with a white man in a gas station parking lot on November 23, 2012.  

The killer, Michael Dunn, was ultimately convicted of first-degree murder. But the story of the trial shows the danger and subjectivity of Florida's Stand Your Ground self-defense laws.  Hear from Jordan Davis’s father Ron.
