“Black lives matter.” “Blue lives (meaning police officers) matter.”  Here in Duluth, we like to think all lives matter and in our comparatively small town, with a comparatively small number of people of color, we like to think that we don’t have the kinds of issues and tensions that you find in other places around the nation.

On this show, we talk about black lives and blue lives and how they intersect here in our community. We’ll find out what we’re doing right, what we need to take a second look at, and what lessons – if any – we can glean from the national discussion on these topics.
