In the days since a gunman shot five police officers in downtown Dallas, group after group has called for a new kind of conversation. Thirty miles north, this conversation has been going on for months. KERA sat down for lunch recently with two Frisco residents – the assistant police chief, who’s white, and the black pastor of a predominately African-American church.
The first day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia kicks off with speeches by First Lady Michelle Obama, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and the party's presidential runner-up, Sen. Bernie Sanders. You can watch the convention livestream here all day, and the NPR/PBS NewsHour coverage starting at 7 p.m. Central Time.
