In this episode of Message in Your Ear we hear from teens about their encounters with law enforcement. We also talk to parents about how they prepare their teens to encounter the police so that they stay alive. Given our current climate and the recent death of Walter Wallace Jr., a 27 year old struggling with mental health issues, this is an important episode for you to listen to and share with your teens. Black teens being need understand the reality of police brutality and receive instruction on how to navigate it.
