Veteran community journalist Thandisizwe Chimurenga who covered closely the killing of Oscar Grant and subsequent trial of his killer Johannes Mehserle joined us to discuss her forthcoming book No Doubt The Murder of Oscar Grant. I began by asking her to tell us about her book and why she began early on in the introduction that, “In order to fully understand ‘what just happened’ at the Fruitvale station in the early morning hours of Jan. 1, 2009, it is necessary to have an accurate understanding of white supremacy.”
