Lisa Bloom & Carl E. Douglas

Three years after the tragic death of Trayvon Martin and six months after Michael Brown was killed by police in Ferguson, MO, we bring together two American civil rights attorneys to discuss these senseless killings. Lisa Bloom’s most recent book, Suspicion Nation: The Inside Story of the Trayvon Martin Injustice and Why We Continue to Repeat It sparked a national dialogue about race, implicit bias, and gun control through a thorough examination of what happened in the courtroom during one of America’s most iconic cases in recent history. Carl E. Douglas is an American lawyer specializing in police misconduct cases. His high-profile clients have included O. J. Simpson, Michael Jackson, Jamie Foxx, and Queen Latifah.
