WATCH: Harris Appears on CBS Sunday Morning

Over and over again, he said it: "Believe your eyes. What you saw, you saw."

Prosecutor Steve Schleicher, in final arguments to the jury in the Derek Chauvin murder trial, said: "It's exactly what you saw with your eyes. It's exactly what you knew. It's what you felt in your gut. It's what you now know in your heart. ... This wasn't policing – this was murder."

Correspondent Martha Teichner asked professor Duchess Harris, a race scholar at Macalester College in St. Paul, "When it happens in your city, you take it personally?"

"I can't not take this personally, not as a Black mom in the Twin Cities," Harris replied. "There's no way. All of this is personal to me. There has been a killing of an unarmed Black man every summer since 2014."
