At an NAACP forum Wednesday called “Stop Police Violence,” Aryana Crawford told Charlotte Mecklenburg police leaders she was afraid of them. The recent police killings of African-American men in Louisiana and Minnesota have brought sharper focus to an issue that many know too well.

Then something extraordinary happened that began to change Aryana’s view. I captured the scene in this piece for WFAE on Thursday.  Worth a listen … (and I do recommend listening, rather than reading this one – it’s the kind of story where radio works best).
