In the last decade Black Americans have gone from exhilaration and hope with the election of Barack Obama to the malaise and fear of the Trump presidency. Both administrations serve as tacit examples of the gains and regressions of minorities. From issues such as a burdensome relationship with the police to the old adage 'last hired, first fired,' people of colour continue to face a mountain of challenges that block the path to total equality. Ed Gordon - a skilled interviewer - explores and debates the tactics used to secure Black America's rightful place in the 'home of the brave'. Through expansive dialogues with our nation's most important black leaders, he discusses the critical questions facing African Americans today and explores where people of colour find themselves in today's charged political and social climates.
