Langston Leake speaks during the In Solidarity discussion following the release of a video that used racist language at Miller Learning Center in Athens, Georgia, on Monday, March 25, 2019. “I’m asking you [people not of color] to hold yourself and your peers to a higher standard,” Lee said about the incident.

You're listening to The Red & Black's News & Brews, a weekly recap of Athens and University of Georgia news and a look ahead to some important events.

Today we're with news reporter Savannah Sicurella to discuss the racist video released by members of a University of Georgia fraternity and how the community responded. We also talk about the "Heartbeat Bill" passing the Georgia General Assembly, businesses opening and closing in Athens and a climate change walkout held at UGA.
