Watch Live June 5: ‘Race Matters: America in Crisis,’ a PBS NewsHour Special

Race Matters America in Crisis

Across the United States, frustration and outrage are pouring out onto the streets over police brutality and the death of George Floyd, as well as deep, systemic racial disparities in education, the criminal justice system, the economy and health care, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Friday, June 5, the PBS NewsHour will focus on these issues in a special called “Race Matters: America in Crisis,” when we’ll turn to grassroots voices from around the country and host round-table conversations of thought leaders, newsmakers and experts.

The special will air on VPM PBS at 9:00 p.m.
