Myla Jacobs, Phinnize Brown and Yasmine Nsame at a protest in Burlington on Saturday, May 30, 2020.

The news cycle continues to expose how America contends with racism: racial disparity in COVID-19 infections and deaths, the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, the police killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, the protests, the president’s tweets, the weaponization of white womanhood.

Listen to VPR on Monday, June 1, 2020 from 8-10 p.m. for a national conversation about racism, violence and our future together.

Hosts Kai Wright and Brian Lehrer will explore these issues with you and listeners across the country throughout the show. We’ll also hear from special guests, including Angela Davis from Minnesota Public Radio and Tanzina Vega from from The Takeaway, and more.

America: Are We Ready: A National Call-In about Racism, Violence, and our Future Together is a partnership of WNYC and Minnesota Public Radio.

Listen live on VPR News stations or stream at 8 p.m.
