This week on Matter of Fact, Soledad O’Brien speaks with attorney and former State Rep. Bakari Sellers about his new memoir, “My Vanishing Country.” His father, a civil rights activist, was shot and charged with inciting a riot 16 years before Sellers was born. He says it was the most important day of his life. Then, in the aftermath of ongoing police shootings, Soledad talks with sociologist Dr. Rashawn Ray about whether this could mark a turning point in the fight against systemic racism. Plus, Correspondent Jessica Gomez reports from a small Florida town of mostly migrant workers who are facing a severe coronavirus outbreak but can’t afford to stay home.
