For Episode 21 of the Nooze Hounds podcast we talked to Kennell Jackson, a 30-year Charlotte resident who took to the streets during protests in early June and found himself at the front of the line taking a leadership role. We discussed why he felt he needed to be there and what he witnessed, from his first experience on June 2 and moving forward.
We also discussed the Juneteenth celebrations on Beatties Ford Road and how the killings that came on the third day have led to a break in the Charlotte protests. Also, CMPD Chief Kerr Putney’s retirement and how the embarrassing handling of Cam Newton by the Carolina Panthers was only the latest in a trend of similar Charlotte sports stories.
Remember you can catch us on Spotify and other places where you find podcasts, and be sure to check out Queen City Podcast Network for a slew of other great Charlotte podcasts that aren’t quite as good as ours but pretty damn close. Find past Nooze Hounds episodes here.
