Prev: 7x01 -- Black and Blue: Soledad O'Brien Reports (Nov/18/2014)

In a new installment of her "Black in America" series, award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien uses graphic videos & incisive interviews to show how the lives of young men are fractured by aggressive policing. Her documentary film, BLACK & BLUE, takes us into the lives of men frisked without cause as many as 100 times & the police officers who insist they're just fighting crime. Between 2002 through mid-2013, the New York Police Department reported making more than 5 million stops. More than 80 percent of those stopped were African American or Latino & 88 percent of the stops did not result in arrests, summons, or evidence of any crime, O’Brien reports with her co-directors Ross Tuttle & Steve Maing.
