Trauma From Stories On Police Violence
May 25, 2021
It's been one year since the video of George Floyd’s murder was spread across social media and the news, leading to months of protests over police brutality and racial inequality.
Today we talk about what impact these stories, and these kinds of videos, have on the people who see them. We hear from trauma and mental health experts on how it especially affects communities of color.
We also learn more about how the media covers police brutality, and social justice protests, and talk about the ethics that guide some of that coverage. What does mainstream media get wrong about how these stories are talked about, and how these images are shown?
