President Johnson on #LivingWhileBlack on PBS NewsHour

July 3, 2018

“It’s hard to legislate what’s in someone’s heart. The only thing you can do is put accountability measures in place and hope that different communities embrace a multi cultural reality where people can have a greater appreciation and understanding,” said Derrick Johnson, NAACP President and CEO. After several months of back to back national incidents in which white citizens have called the police on black citizens performing everyday activities, President Johnson sits down with PBS’ Yamiche Alcindor to discuss #LivingWhileBlack.
