Barker Park Update Part 1 – Interview With Tasheca Medina

Barker Park on 3rd Street in downtown Troy has lately been a busy hub of activity – there have been political demonstrations, violent altercations, and clashes with the local police along with free hot meals, clothing swaps, and other community-building-oriented gatherings.

HMM correspondent Ben Seretan speaks with Tasheca Medina, the founder of Equality for Troy, about the park, her organization, and what can be done.
