As protests over racial injustice grab national attention in pro sports, some college and university officials are having pre-emptive talks with student-athletes and consulting each other amid concerns that such actions will spread to college sports, according to emails released Thursday.

To celebrate three amazing years, we’re re-airing our best segments in a two part broadcast. Here are the best picks for today: The violence in Charlottesville, Virginia this summer renewed conversations about race relations, and have left some searching for answers on how to de-radicalize people. That’s something Shannon Martinez of Athens knows first-hand. She was a skinhead for several years, but managed to leave that life behind her. We talk with her and Sammy Rangel of Life After Hate, a group that helps people move away from hate and violent extremism. We add two more songs to our Georgia Playlist. Killer Mike is one of Georgia’s most beloved musicians. He is half of the rap duo Run the Jewels and founder of Grind Time Official Records.
