Deborah Watts, a cousin of Emmett Till and co-founder of the Emmett Till Legacy foundation, joins Ali Velshi to discuss Derek Chauvin’s conviction and the continued fight for racial justice, as is the case with the lives of Emmett Till and Tamir Rice. “The voices of those that are closest to the pain need to be heard.”
