Historic systemic racism plagues East Buffalo’s growth

The legacy of segregation and systematic racism impacted East Buffalo, long before a gunman walked into the TOPS Supermarket on May 14th, 2022 – unleashing a racist rampage inside the one grocery store that served the neighborhood. The shooter not only destroyed lives but also destroyed one of the few accessible and affordable options for healthy food. This series explores how the East Buffalo community is actively working to heal from the ongoing racial trauma they face, and showcases young leaders who are working to #ChangeTheNarrative and make their community a better place with funding from our sponsor W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Claretta Bellamy reports for NBC News.
