On this episode of Into America, host Trymaine Lee speaks with Blayne Alexander about this weekend’s killing of Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta by the police.

Another unarmed Black man was killed by police over the weekend, this time in Atlanta. His name was Rayshard Brooks and he was 27 years old. The officer who shot Brooks has been fired, and the police chief has resigned, while across the country, protests against police brutality and racism continue. NBC News correspondent Blayne Alexander has been reporting the story in Georgia and spoke to Brooks’ wife over the weekend. She and Trymaine also talk about the emotional toll of being a Black journalist covering this moment.
