The 45th Dr. Joseph H. McMillan National Black Family Conference is happening in Louisville later this month, and this year’s theme is “Elevating the Health and Safety of the Black Family and Community.” Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon Martin’s mother, will deliver a keynote speech at the conference, and she joins us on this week’s show to talk about her advocacy work, and her son’s legacy.

And in a shocking Valentine’s Day revelation, we learn that Jai still pokes people on Facebook.
