America in Black & Blue, A PBS NewsHour Weekend Special

 

After a week of violence, grief and horror, with five police officers shot dead in Dallas, and two African American men shot dead by police officers in Minnesota and Louisiana, this news special will dig deep to explore the roots of these events, competing accounts of responsibility and justice, and televise the conversation that America is having around so many losses, mutual fears, and also around the common ground where progress may be made. Journalist Alison Stewart anchors, with reports from Newark, New Jersey and Minneapolis, Minnesota.
