Senator Pramila Jayapal

In August, two Black Lives Matter supporters interrupted a rally for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, making national headlines, raising questions about their actions and what the Black Lives Mater movement was all about. KCTS 9’s Enrique Cerna examines the incident and how it has affected conversations about race and justice with Washington State Senator Pramila Jayapal whose Facebook post about the incident drew national attention and University of Washington political science professor Christopher Parker who has written extensively about racial politics in America.
