On this episode of Slauson Girl Speaks, I have a discussion with Black and Brown folks, on Black and Brown relationships in Los Angeles in 2020. We discuss historical tensions of the two groups, as well as the rise in attacks against Latino street vendors posted online by Black youth. The conversation also touched on the immigrant experience and what causes migration to the U.S, as well as many of the anti-Black attitudes in the Latino community. Jobs, white supremacy, colorism and what true solidarity looks like for both communities was also the topic of conversation--along with so much more!
Guest: Danny Carter, co-founder of Buy Back The Block L..A, a financial and real estate literacy group based in Los Angeles, Memo Torres, Writer and photographer at L.A TACO, Abigail Lopez-Byrd, Founder and Executive Director of Color Compton.

The Piketon Massacre
The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
