Joyce Beatty

In a time when people are sharing more of their personal struggles, we talk to Congresswoman Joyce Beatty and Doug McCollough about their struggles -- and more importantly how they navigated those struggles so they could make their greatest impact on the world. Congresswoman Beatty not only overcame, she changed the view of what it is to be a successful black woman. She talks about how helping women succeed helps America succeed.

Services were held today for Andre Hill, the unarmed Black man fatally shot by a white Columbus police officer December 22.

One of the many images that resonated from several days of downtown Columbus protests and demonstrations against police brutality and racism was Franklin County Commissioner Kevin Boyce, Congresswoman Joyce Beatty, and Columbus City Council President Shannon Hardin being pepper sprayed by officers.

A Cincinnati police officer escaped injury when his helmet was struck by a bullet during a police brutality protest early Sunday while in Columbus a fire considered suspicious destroyed a nearly completed apartment building. 

Rep. Joyce Beatty, the Ohio Democrat who was pepper-sprayed at a demonstration in Columbus on Saturday, says property destruction accompanying protests over the death of George Floyd is a "distraction to the message."

Speaking to NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday, Beatty said she understands the sentiment that attempting to have a "healthy dialogue" about race hasn't worked, but that "violence doesn't work — violence either way."
