With the shooting of Jacob Blake and the increasing tensions in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Jeh Johnson, former Homeland Security Secretary, joins Christiane Amanpour to discuss the latest developments in the fight for racial justice playing out on America’s streets. He says the White House risks antagonizing protesters further by politicizing the government response. Turning to climate, Benji Backer, the American Conservation Coalition President, explains why the Republican National Convention ignoring the urgent climate crisis is an immense failure. Then we speak with Josina Machel, daughter of Graca Machel and step-daughter of the late Nelson Mandela, about the brutal domestic assault that left her blind in one eye. She reflects on the surges in gender-based violence in South Africa during lockdown, already one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a woman. And lastly, our Michel Martin talks to the former U.S. House Republican Mia Love about the highs and lows of Trump’s controversial presidency.
