Full Frame: The U.S. Racial Divide

Full Frame

Ongoing protests against police brutality in the United States are rooted in centuries of frustrations.

Social media has made it possible to witness, almost in real time, cases of police brutality targeted against black people. Can decades of racial injustice change in the U.S.?

Full Frame host, Mike Walter, talks with Georgetown University Professor Robert Patterson about this country’s sins of the past that continue to haunt its present.

The death of African-American George Floyd, under the knee of a white police officer, sent thousands of demonstrators to the streets across the United States.

The social justice movement is also forcing the country’s education system to take a hard look at how it treats students of color and find ways to build a better system for all students. One recent survey found educators are more likely than the general population to voice their support for the Black Lives Matter movement. Full Frame talks with two school teachers who are supporting the cause.

George Floyd’s death sparked both nationwide and international social justice protests. The movement puts pressure on elected officials and businesses who are now revisiting their approach to diversity and inclusion policies.

Full Frame host, Mike Walter, talks with Nicol Turner Lee, an expert on the intersection of race and technology, and how that crossroad can impact communities.
