New School Professor Maya Wiley on the Struggle for Equal Justice in America

This week on "The Tent," Ed and Jesse discuss the Trump administration's efforts to undermine public health officials as coronavirus cases rise across the country, and New School professor Maya Wiley talks about the declining state of justice in America and the influence of Black Lives Matter.

Part of a Series

As the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 continues to grow in the United States, the Trump administration has sought new ways to distract the public from their inadequate pandemic response. Ed and Jesse break down the White House’s efforts to undermine public health officials and the president’s directionless campaign speeches. Later, they connect with New School professor Maya Wiley about the declining state of justice in America and the influence of the Black Lives Matter movement.
