Highlighting the death and injustice of Eric Garner; “exploring the watershed moments for law enforcement and the black community at the crossroads between life and death.”
Executive produced and narrated by Academy Award winner Viola Davis, along with Julius Tennon and Lemuel Plummer as executive producers. L. Plummer Media (Lemuel Plummer) and JuVee Production (Julius Tennon) have combined with the talent and experience of Davis to do this monumental story justice for TV One.
Opening up the episode is Al Sharpton saying “There are two sides to every case but there is one truth”; leading into the mother of Eric Garner, Gwen Carr expressing “Everyone who was there, who did nothing to help my son they a need to stand accountable.” Eric Garner was killed while being arrested in New York City igniting the, “I Can’t Breathe” movement.
One thing is for sure, this show is not for those unprepared for the truth or the faint of hart. If you are someone who seeks understanding of the justice system, the police department, and police brutality among people of color or minorities; than this is for you.
