Race and Justice in America: A Counterpoint Special

By Hyan Freitas | News Director | July 21st, 2013 | LEAVE A COMMENT

Below you’ll find the full audio of Counterpoint’s roundtable discussion on race and justice in America.  We dedicated the entire Counterpoint hour to these topics in light of conversations that have started across the nation following the not guilty verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman.

We also split the show into three segments in case there is a specific topic that might be of more interest than another or if you tuned in late when it aired live.  Each has its own player below.

Part I: Reactions to the Verdict

Part II: A conversation on racial profiling: Is it an issue?

Part III:  The American Justice System:  Is it unfair to minorities?

Roundtable: Transit in Miami

By Hyan Freitas | News Director | March 8th, 2013 | LEAVE A COMMENT

 

The Purple Line is a pop-up transit station. While real trains won’t be passing through, the idea is to give commuters a taste of what could be: a city hub that goes beyond just another train station. In a city they feel is lacking sufficient transit options, organizers Anna McMaster and Marta Viciedo hope that once the community sees what could be, they’ll never want to settle for anything less.

They joined ‘The Weekly Voice’ host Hyan Freitas to talk about their project. WVUM’s own DJ Swanky (Leah Weston) joined us as well. Her graphic comparing Miami’s rail line with other well known metro lines quickly went viral locally via social media.

Along with comments given by listeners via the WVUM Facebook page, so began the discussion of transit in Miami: the good, the bad and what can be done better.
