Mayor Sylvester Turner | Conversations for Change (Ep. 4)
Janice, Cal and Hannah McNair discuss racism and social injustice with Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner. Turner shares his story of growing up in Houston, being bused across town to a primarily white school, and going on to earn his way to Harvard Law School. The four of them talked about the effect of George Floyd's death on the country, but more specifically the Houston community, the Black Lives Matter movement and how "this time is different."
