Did Larnelle Bros. die because of the color of his skin? American journalist Maubin Azhar speaks to reformed neo-Nazis, angry protesters and shocked families about the death of a young African-American who was run over and killed by a suspected racist on August 10, 2016 in Portland after an argument. The documentary, produced by BBC Studios, also accompanies the trial which took some unexpected turns.
After Donald Trump was elected President of the United States in 2016, women and organizations stood up to address inequality and sexual harassment. Movements like #MeToo and Time’s Up have followed the “women’s march.” The documentary “Women Protest and Resistance – The Fight for a New America”, a PBS front line product, allows the initiators and founders of these movements to express their views. They have reported from the moment it became clear to them that these women’s issues are not related to personal sensitivities, but rather to social grievances. The film describes how entrepreneurs create platforms to show the unequal treatment of women in modern society, and how they try to bring about legal changes that end inequality.
