Houston Matters Town Hall: The African-American Community’s Relationship with Law-Enforcement

Posted on · On this special edition of Houston Matters, we devote an entire hour to exploring the relationship between Greater Houston police and Houston’s black community with a number of guests in front of a live audience at Houston Public Media.
