This show features speeches from the Melbourne Blak Lives Matter rally – the recording is thanks to 3CR Community Radio. We also discuss how significantly the Black Lives Matter movement has changed public opinion in the US and beyond, drawing on The New York Times article ‘How Public Opinion Has Moved on Black Lives Matter’ by Nate Cohn and Kevin Quealy.

Another topic covered is Australia’s racist history, which included slavery.
