PBS has curated a special playlist of films and specials that focus on race in America following the death of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, and the ensuing protests that erupted across the country. In addition to films focused on African American history by Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and Stanley Nelson, PBS also curated a playlist of programs from FRONTLINE, POV, INDEPENDENT LENS and other iconic series that explore the impact of racism on Black Americans and the larger country.

Below is a list of specials that can be streamed on pbs.org.

WDSE•WRPT is also hosting local conversations around race in our region.
