What A Day
Five former Memphis police officers have been charged with second degree murder for the killing of Tyre Nichols, a Black man who died days after he was violently arrested on Jan. 7th. Footage of the incident is set to be released Friday night — and lawyers for Nichols’ family, who have seen the video, compared it to the infamous police beating of Rodney King in 1991.
And in headlines: Israeli forces killed 9 Palestinians during a raid in the occupied West Bank, the College Board said it will revise its pilot AP course on African American Studies, and Virginia Democrats defeated three Republican attempts to restrict abortion in the state.

Each morning, comedian Akilah Hughes and reporter Gideon Resnick break down the day’s big stories, in such a way that this podcast good-naturedly touts itself as “what Fox & Friends would sound like, if it were hosted by two people whose parents read to them as children.”
