Death by Dragging
In Jun 1998, James Byrd Jr. caught a ride with three white men. Instead of taking him home, the three men took Byrd to a remote county road out of town to beat him. They then chained him by his ankles to their pickup truck before dragging him for about three miles, killing him. Saadia and Asad discuss the murder and its implications on America.
HOW TO HELP:
The Byrd family established The Byrd Foundation for Racial Healing to “promote racial healing and cultural diversity through education,” which listeners can donate to
