Colorblind: ReThinking Race
Premieres Sunday, Oct. 21, 2012 at 7 p.m. CST
followed by Colorblind: ReThinking Race - The Town Hall Meeting at 8:30 p.m. CST
Sunday, Oct. 21, 2012 at 7 p.m. WYCC PBS Chicago will break ground on the topic of race relations in America with the airing of a major national documentary, Colorblind: ReThinking Race. Produced in partnership with the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and Middle Passage Productions, WYCC PBS Chicago’s Colorblind takes an honest look at the effects of racism in America. The goal of the documentary is to bring clarity to the topic by presenting the modern expression of racism, exploring how these negative beliefs are unwittingly fostered, and recognizing the people and projects that address racial inequality and promote racial healing.
In conjunction with this 90-minute documentary, WYCC PBS Chicago will present a one-hour town hall meeting. Hosted by respected WGN-TV anchor and reporter Robert Jordan, this televised meeting will bring together a collection of notable panelists with a wide range of expertise in areas highlighted in the documentary - health, wealth, education and justice. Our goal is to provide insightful commentary about Colorblind while continuing the dialogue about racism and racial healing.
We will be tweeting about the documentary during the airing of both the documentary and the town hall meeting. Use the hashtag #wycccolorblind when tweeting about Colorblind. WYCC PBS Chicago is dedicated to continuing the conversation about race relations in America.
