As people look to sustain the movement for racial justice, they are turning to the ballot box.  

Hundreds of Black candidates are running in local races, state races, and Congressional races all across the country in 2020.  After weeks of protest, will we see a wave of Black candidates elected as an answer to those calls for change? 

Host Trymaine Lee speaks with two women who are trying to bring racial justice to the electoral system. Political strategist Jessica Byrd felt called into the movement while watching the Ferguson uprisings, and Sybrina Fulton’s journey through activism to politics began when her son Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by police in 2012.
