Mab Segrest: “Be Brave: There Is Something Worth More Than Our Lives”
The Laura Flanders Show streams at www.grittv.org. This year, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of many civil rights movement victories at the same time that police killings, like the killing of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown, cause some to wonder what has changed. Mab Segrest, whose cousin was indicted and then acquitted in the killing of a black civil rights leader, joins us to discuss how growing up in Tuskegee during the 1960’s made her the anti-white supremacy, anti-patriarchy activist she is today. The media tropes used to demonize Black Americans are still in use today.
