12.01.2021 #RolandMartinUnfiltered: Ga Flips Again, Abrams Announce 2022 Gov Bid, Montgomery Bus Boycott Anniv., Smollet & Potter trials

Stacey Abrams says she’s running for Georgia Governor in 2022. Atlanta has a new mayor. Andre Dickens is here to tell us about his plans for the city. Other Georgia cities are making history flipping from Republican to Democratic leadership. Voters in Warner Robins elected its first woman and first Black mayor to lead the city. We’ll have the Senior Georgia Manager for Black Voters Matter tell how they pulled off a flip again in the peach state.

The Brennan Center of Justice has researched the proposed and enacted legislation to make it harder for Americans to vote. The Acting Director, Voting Rights & Elections will be here to break it all down for us.

We’ll have updates on the two trials we’re watching:
It’s day 3 in the trial for former "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett.
And jury selection continues in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, for the manslaughter trial of a former Minnesota police officer who fatally shot a Black man during a traffic stop.

Jacqueline Avant, the wife of music icon Clarence Avant, is shot and killed during a home invasion.

She wrote a book about her rape and her rapist. But the man who was convicted for Alice Sebold’s rape wasn’t the one who did it. Now she’s offering an apology to Anthony Broadwater, who was exonerated last week.

The omicron coronavirus variant has the world on edge. Dr. Lisa Fitzpatrick will be here to tell us how nervous we should be and if there will be another vaccine we’ll have to take.

It’s the 66th anniversary of the Montgomery Bus Boycott. We’ll take a look back at that historical event and here what Civil Rights Attorney Fred Gray remembers about how he played a part in changing the world.
