“CBS This Morning” co-host Gayle King will sit down with Ieshia Evans, the Baton Rouge nurse and mother who was captured in the now-iconic photo that went viral, showing her calmly facing Louisiana state guards in a long dress, protesting the fatal police shooting of Alton Sterling.

The full interview will be broadcast tomorrow, Friday, July 15, on “CBS This Morning” (7:00-9:00 AM, ET) on the CBS Television Network; an excerpt from it will be broadcast tonight, Thursday, July 14, on “CBS Evening News With Scott Pelley” (6:30-7:00 PM, ET). Additionally, an early excerpt will be presented on CBSN, CBS News’ 24/7 digital streaming news service. Video clips will be available on www.cbsnews.com.




Evans, who was arrested shortly after the impactful photo was taken, was among more than a hundred people released from the East Baton Rouge Parish Jail on Sunday. King will also speak with Jay Morrison, fellow protestor and founder of Young Minds Can movement, during the interview, about the protests and how to move forward.
