Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all three charges stemming from the 2020 killing of George Floyd. The verdict was read April 20, 2021. Just 20 minutes before the verdict was announced, 16 year-old Ma’Khia Bryant was shot and killed by police in Columbus, Ohio. This comes just days after 20-year-old Daunte Wright was fatally shot by police officer Kimberly Ann Potter during a traffic stop. Many are on still on edge across the country calling for justice in the killings, as the list keeps growing.
We’re continuing our commitment to highlight content that will continue the conversation, add historical context to these issues and enable change. Below you will find programs that profile police departments, specials that detail conversations parents of color have with their children, documentaries that cover the treatment of African Americans since slavery and films that shed light on both past and current civil rights activism.
These offerings are resources for everyone, regardless of race, to educate themselves on all of the ways inequality in America shows up in everyday life. We will update this page as programs become available for streaming online and on the PBS Video App. Check local listings for broadcast times
