A report released earlier this week by the Equal Justice Initiative reveals there were more lynchings of Blacks in 12 Southern states than previously believed. We’ll discuss the legacy and ongoing effect of this country’s bloody history of terror against Black Americans. Plus, House Bill 222 introduced this week in the Maryland General Assembly, calls for tougher sanctions against heroin distributors and dealers connected to overdose deaths in Maryland. We’ll take a look at the bill as well as Governor Larry Hogan’s overall strategy in battling the so-called heroin epidemic.  It’s all coming up this evening on AFRO’s First Edition with Sean Yoes.
