One year ago today, Jacob Blake was shot seven times in the back by a Kenosha police officer. Coming a few months after the murder of George Floyd, the shooting of Blake opened a fresh wound across the state.
In Madison, Milwaukee, Kenosha and elsewhere, protesters took to the streets to demand Justice for Jacob.
Earlier today, our producer Jonah Chester spoke with Justin Blake — a community activist and Jacob Blake’s uncle.
