An editorial cartoon on the front page of the Call & Post depicting a Black politician as Aunt Jemima has created an uproar. This all stems from State Senator Nina Turner's support of Issue 6--the county reform measure--a stance that put her in opposition to the old guard black leadership. Beyond the obvious issues of taste, this points to some deep fissures among leaders in the local Black community. Wednesday morning at 9, join us for a conversation about what's actually going on here.
