Welcome

The hashtag Black Lives Matter started in 2014 and united America’s black population outraged by a lack of civil rights and the abuse of power. How do blacks in the Mid-West live today? Who is at the core of the 'Afro-American' resistance? What do African-Americans want?

To answer these questions, our film crew traveled to the poorest neighborhoods of St. Louis, and New York, as well as Ferguson, Missouri. The series explores the significant problems of ghetto dwellers – lack of education, criminality, drug abuse, teenage pregnancies, lack of housing, and police brutality. However, the communities won’t put up with the way things are. The series tells the story of how African-Americans fight for their rights, strive for success, lifting themselves out of poverty no matter what.

BLACK LIVES is a 2018 award-winning documentary short series produced by RT Documentary Channel.

Episode 1--STRUGGLE: Still dreaming of racial justice in St. Louis' black neighborhoods

Black Lives: Trap. Why civil rights aren’t enough to make the American Dream come true

Premiere 26/07 When Black Americans got equal rights in the 1960s; they also got a fair chance to pursue the American Dream. Or did they? Black America in the 21st Century is still plagued by social problems from housing ghettos to substandard schools, crime and mass incarceration. Some claim that African Americans are just not trying hard enough to overcome these obstacles. Many Black leaders argue their community is the victim of a system which sets families up to fail. They disagree amongst themselves on the nature of this system, however. Journalist Pearl Jr. points the finger at White supremacy and systemic racism, while controversial clerics Imam Abdullah Musa, and Steve Parson, a pastor, see another deadly sin perverting the American Dream.
