The shooting death of a Black man with a history of mental health problems prompted protests, widespread vandalism and an overnight curfew in Philadelphia days before Election Day. Protestors in other parts of the country are still calling for justice in the shooting of Jacob Blake and the killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor.
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.
