CNN will look at police practices and the African-American community in a new installment of its Black In America series airing Nov. 18.
Journalist Soledad O’Brien will host Black In America: Black & Blue, which will show how lives of young African-American men are fractured by aggressive policing, according to CNN officials.
“What is so shocking is that this police practice was used around the country - and in some places still is - with the theory that police were stopping criminals,” said O’Brien. “It’s shocking that the city where this was popularized was stopping so many innocent people."
Black In America: Black & Blue is the sixth in the Black In America series, which launched in 2008.
