Anderson Cooper was back in the AC360 anchor chair Friday night. Most of the program was spent on Anderson's exclusive interview as described by the AC360 website:
Connected by similar tragedies, on Friday the mothers of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, and Tamir Rice found themselves together in one room, all talking with Anderson Cooper.
Each of the four women is grieving over a lost son, and though the specifics in each instance varied, certain similarities did exist. And one of those similarities was race.
