This past weekend protesters took to the streets for a national Day of Resistance for Americans to show solidarity with the #BlackLivesMatter, #ICantBreathe and #HandsUpDontShoot movements.
On Monday, Roland Martin, host of “NewsOne Now,” and the Straight Talk panel (featuring Rev. Carlton Lee, Erika Totten and Michael Melton) discuss the build up of resentment of how police have conducted themselves in the wake of the recent police shootings, what effect the protests are having and if the protests are leading to change in this country.

Olympic gold medalist Tommie Smith was in town over the weekend to impart to young people including area children the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
Smith, 66, said he was alarmed when he became aware of the effects of poor nutrition and health choices on children.
“About six years ago while I was in California, it came to my attention that kids as young as 10 years old were being prescribed high blood pressure medicine,” Smith said. “As a former educator and athlete, I realized the
need to increase my efforts to educate and promote healthy lifestyles through physical fitness.”
