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. We look at how Houston is faring in building relationships and bridging the divide between law enforcement and the African-American community. We consider whether Houston has the same problems as other parts of the country and what steps already exist — or can be taken — to address those divides, particularly in light of nationwide division brought front and center through the 2016 presidential election.
