This special will report from across the country and include interviews with key leaders and participants in the struggle for racial justice, accountability and equity, as well as voices from law enforcement.

As the latest crisis of police violence on black citizens — and outraged protests and ensuing violence — engulf the nation, this PBS special will bring context and insight. It will update reporting from the original America in Black and Blue, which first aired in 2016. Correspondents will report from Minneapolis, Georgia, New York and elsewhere, and interviews from PBS NewsHour Weekend, Amanpour and Company, and other PBS national and local programming will be included. More details are forthcoming. America In Black and Blue 2020, A PBS Newshour Weekend Special, airs Tuesday, June 16 at 7pm and Wednesday June 17 at 10am  on WXXI-World.
