As the world continues to absorb the impact of the Derrick Chauvin trial and verdict, initial reactions are being shared and dialogues gain momentum even as new questions about turning points, change making and next steps to be taken arise.

For a local reflection on this landmark decision and thoughts on accountability of law enforcement, WBOI's Julia Meek contacted civil rights activist, educator and host of WBOI's Gospel Flight, Dee McKinley, by Zoom to discuss and measure the possibility of "justice for all."

Dee McKinley's Gospel Flight airs Sunday Mornings, 4:00 to 8:00 at 89.1 or listen online at WBOI.org.
