Public Radio Hour "Citizen Journalist" 9-3-20

This week, we continue our coverage of the racial justice movement here in Huntsville, and we hear from folks who were present at the protests in downtown Huntsville in early June. Local photographer Aaron Surratt tells us about capturing on film the shift from a peaceful rally to looming clouds of teargas June 1 and 3. Citizen journalists J'Que Ellis and Rita Burkholder join media historian Dr. Butler Cain for a panel discussion. And Eric Edwards reunites with Andrew Kruspe, both of whom attended the June 3 protest in downtown Huntsville. They recount their personal experiences that night and the circumstances in which they met. WLRH's Brett Tannehill hosts this week, with Katy Ganaway.
