Black activist threatened with lynching in rural Indiana

We’ve been speaking to one African-American man about the very ordinary, everyday racist attack he faced.

Vauhxx Booker, a young black activist in rural Indiana was assaulted and threatened with a lynching – the age-old means of terrorising black people – when he went for a walk in the woods with his friends.

And a warning, some viewers may find some of the language used in this report disturbing.
