This week on Local Motion we’ll hear interviews with a Black pastor from Lake City, Colorado and an ethnic studies professor from CU Boulder. The pastor, Brendan McMillan, is the only Black religious leader in his small mountain town, but he and his family were not invited to a recent Black Lives Matter protest. McMillan and associate professor Hillary Potter discuss the Black Lives Matter movement and racial issues with KVNF's Laura Palmisano.

Laura joined KVNF in 2014. She was the news director for two years and now works as a freelance reporter covering Colorado's Western Slope. Laura is an award-winning journalist with work recognized by the Society of Professional Journalists, Colorado Broadcasters Association, and RTDNA. In 2015, she was a fellow for the Institute for Justice & Journalism. Her fellowship project, a three-part series on the Karen refugee community in Delta, Colorado, received a regional Edward R. Murrow Award.
