Y’all loved the first one so much, we had to bring it back! Hosts jarrett hill and Tre’vell Anderson welcome writer, editor, and Stop Cop City activist Da’Shaun L. Harrison. Harrison also discusses why they and fellow activists are trying to block the development and construction of a police training compound “Cop City”, on the outskirts of Atlanta. Stop Cop City activists believe that going forward with the development would displace and disenfranchise the lives of marginalized people, and further perpetuate the police state we are currently living in. In addition, they’ll discuss how copaganda goes beyond just “cop shows” and legal dramas and can show up in many different forms in media.
Later on the show, Tre’vell and jarrett get into some DisHonorable Mentions and a history lesson on civil rights activist Pauli Murray.

About the show
Sometimes the people, places, and things we love don’t love us back. We’re fans, but we also have some ANTI- feelings toward them. Every week on FANTI, journalists Tre’vell Anderson and jarrett hill bring their pop culture and political expertise to things we must stan and stand up against. FANTI is a place where nuance reigns supreme with energetic, complicated, and sometimes difficult conversations that bring deep knowledge and thoughtful perspective to the things we love and rage about, from the White House to the Real House(wives).
