Voices Magnified: Policing In America

This special, narrated by Emmy® Award-winning actor Laurence Fishburne, examines what it will take to transform the way we police our streets so that people of all races can feel safe and respected by those who are charged with protecting them.

By assembling multiple perspectives — community leaders and activists, police, grieving families and victims of brutality — the aim is to understand why, amid a global health pandemic,  Americans from across the socioeconomic and racial spectrums felt compelled to leave the safety of their homes and pour into the streets to demand racial justice after the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and others. On all sides, people with the most at stake seek to advance solutions to these issues, transforming the smoldering embers of the uprising into a real spark for systemic change.

The special also specifically explores the city and county of Los Angeles and tracks the unfolding story of how that city is working to address the historically troubled relationship between residents of color and law enforcement.
