Last summer, historic protests erupted across the country in response to anti-Black police violence. And in Chicago, official police narratives often conflicted with what actually occurred on the ground.

As the national debate about race and policing continues, we asked Lakeidra Chavis of The Trace to lead a conversation examining the roles of crime and accountability reporting within journalism and ways to find the truth even while facing tight deadlines.

You can watch the conversation with panelists Tahman Bradley, WGN, Paige Fry, Chicago Tribune, Jeremy Gorner, Chicago Tribune, and Darryl Holliday, City Bureau in the player below, as well as links they shared to resources and more.
