The WNET Group, part of public media, reports on racism and reform, including interviews grassroots organizers, thought leaders, journalists, and those with first-hand experience in activism, law enforcement and law making.
“Black Lives Matter” can be heard and seen across the country as activists demand justice for Black Americans killed by police and seek systemic change in law enforcement practices and funding. Institutional racism – intentional and unintentional ways that racism manifests itself in how institutions are created and managed – is being discussed by academics, advocates, and organizations.
This page highlights news segments and interviews about racism, advocacy for reform, and policing in the New York City metropolitan region, New Jersey, and the country, which appeared on the news and public affairs programs of The WNET Group between May 2020 and mid-March 2021.
