The Danger of White Women’s Tears: Melody Cooper In Conversation with De’Ara Balenger
Melody Cooper sent shock waves across the country when she posted a video of her brother Christian’s disturbing confrontation with a white woman in Central Park. Melody published a powerful opinion piece in the New York Times about how for far too many Black families, the result has been fatal; and how her brother’s incident and the reaction to it should be used to focus on the systemic problem of deeply entrenched racism. Join Melody in conversation with De’Ara Balenger, founder of Maestra, activist, lawyer, and Minneapolis native, about why she decided to post the video, and a broader conversation about the impact this climate has on Black women across the country.
