Race Relations Analyst

For years Jolanda has been the go to expert on race relations and police brutality. Whether the issue is Black on Black crime or OJ Simpson or Trayvon Martin’s killing by George Zimmerman or the shooting of unarmed Robbie Tolan in his yard by the Bellaire Police or the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington, to name a few, Jolanda analysis is spot on and brutally honest.

Jolanda’s perspective is shaped by her brother, aunt and multiple cousins’ murders and her work as a lawyer in the criminal justice system. She’s had and has relatives imprisoned for murder, rape and other violent and drug offenses. Various members of her family, as well as herself, have been victims of racial profiling, including the near shooting of her innocent unarmed teenaged son and his friend by a Houston police officer.

Her life and so many in her community had been so impacted by racial profiling that she felt motivated to empower those victimized by giving free educational seminars on “Know Your Rights With The Police!” Her free seminars have been going on for at least 15 years and still counting.

If you need an expert on police brutality or race relations then Jolanda is the one. You can’t go wrong.
