After three weeks of often wrenching testimony, a Minneapolis jury on Tuesday found police officer Derek Chauvin guilty of murder and manslaughter Tuesday in the death of George Floyd. We want to hear how you are processing the jury’s decision, and what you think it means for broader efforts to achieve racial justice and police accountability.

Guests:

Nikki Jones, professor of African American Studies, UC Berkeley, author of "The Chosen Ones: Black Men and the Politics of Redemption" 

Taun Hall, mental health activist; mother of Miles Hall, who was fatally shot by Walnut Creek police in 2019

Syndey Kamlager, state senator representing Los Angeles county

Chris Holden, assemblymember representing Los Angeles county
