Generational Split? Millennials And Elders Battle Over Who Should Lead The Movement


In the midst of the fight for justice for Michael Brown, John Crawford, Eric Garner and others, young activists are calling for older more established voices to step aside.

Roland Martin, Pastor Jamal Bryant, Lauren Victoria Burke, Cleo Manago and Kim Brown look at the generational split within the movement for social change. Isn’t there enough room for everyone’s voice to be heard? Listen to their conversation below.
