As the cries for racial justice continue in America and the election looms ever closer, Democratic Senator Chris Murphy joins Christiane Amanpour to unpack all this and his new book, "The Violence Inside Us." He talks fighting gun violence from Newtown to Kenosha and avoiding another Sandy Hook. As protests sweep Belarus over what many say is was a rigged election, Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, the stay-at-home mom turned Belarusian opposition leader, opens up about her unlikely foray into politics. Erin Brockovich became a household name when her fight for environmental justice was immortalized by Julia Robert’s portrayal of her in the 2000 film. She reflects on her battle for clean water for all and penning her new book “Superman’s Not Coming.” And finally, Ana Cabrera speaks to stand-up comedian and actor John Leguizamo about his directorial debut, "Critical Thinking,” the true story of a group of underprivileged Latinx and Black teens who qualified for the National Chess Championship in 1998.
