The death of George Floyd in Minneapolis has led to days of protests from grieving, frustrated demonstrators in that city and others across the U.S., including Chicago, and around the world. It’s also brought back memories of the death of Laquan McDonald, who was killed by Chicago police six years ago.

We speak with the Rev. Marvin Hunter, a pastor at Grace Memorial Baptist Church and Laquan McDonald’s great uncle whose niece, Tina Hunter, is Laquan McDonald’s mother.
