Produced by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, #BLACKLIVESMATTER is a poignant look at the hashtag-turned-political movement. Reporter Sally Sara takes to the streets of Baltimore and Chicago to investigate a reawakened civil rights movement that’s fighting to stop the killing of black Americans. Sara travels to Baltimore in the wake of the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, who suffered fatal injuries while being arrested by police. She also looks at the extreme gun violence happening in Chicago’s South Side, where 40 percent of kids grow up in poverty and gangs run rampant. #BLACKLIVESMATTER is available through Infobase’s Films On Demand, Classroom Video On Demand, and Access Video On Demand streaming video services, along with many other timely films on the world events that are being studied and debated the most.
