JET’s most recent cover features Jordan Davis, a Florida teen who was murdered last year while sitting in a vehicle, in a dispute over loud music. Writer Denene Millner caught up with Ron Davis, Jordan’s father, to talk about a parent’s worst nightmare, as well as his fight against Florida’s stand your ground law, which may be sited in court as defense for the perpetrator.

Mitzi Miller, JET’s editor-in-chief, recently appeared on MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry Show to chat about the decision behind the galvanizing cover, as well as JET’s responsibility to keep the African-American community informed with well-rounded news. Watch the segment below:
