For many parents and mentors, approaching the topic of the killing of George Floyd and race relations in the United States can be difficult. A local mentoring group for young men of color is considering what steps they might take to effect change in their communities. WBFO’s Thomas O’Neil-White spoke with Say Yes Buffalo’s Boys and Young Men of Color Initiative Director Tommy McClam.

Since this conversation, it has been reported the other three officers involved in George Floyd’s killing have been arrested.
