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.

Human Zoos Trailer

"Human Zoos" is a documentary that tells the story of how thousands of indigenous peoples were put on public display in America in the early decades of the twentieth century. Often touted as “missing links” between man and apes, these native peoples were harassed, demeaned, and jeered at. Their public display was arranged with the enthusiastic support of the most elite members of the scientific community, and it was promoted uncritically by America’s leading newspapers. The documentary also tells the story of a courageous group of African-American ministers who tried to stop one such 'Human Zoo' in New York City. The documentary features Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Pamela Newkirk, author of "Spectacle: The Astonishing Life of Ota Benga." The documentary premieres at the Oregon Documentary Film Festival on Nov. 11, 2017 and will be released in 2018.

Black Lives: Agents of Change (Trailer)

African Americans often grow up in seedy neighbourhoods with failing schools that don’t give them the skills or motivation to turn their lives around. With RTD, see how the community is taking matters into its own hands. At YesPhilly, a second chance high school, Philadelphia teenager Steven Stewart has another opportunity to graduate and change his job prospects. A Black Guns Matter activist teaches him to use firearms safely, a lifesaving skill in an area awash with guns. New York high schoolers also organise Black Lives Matter demonstrations and learn to fight for their rights.

Black Lives: Illusion. Teenage motherhood, single-parent families, and the child poverty trap

Many Black children grow up poor, in single-parent families, often as a result of teen a pregnancy. These young parents are unprepared to take on an adult role and their children can suffer from neglect. In Episode 6, RTD meets Jimmy and Miracle, who are on the brink of repeating the pattern with their own children. Jimmy is the child of a crack addict mother who had a daughter when he was seventeen. Miracle is a mother whose car and marriage broke down at the same time, forcing her to turn to welfare to survive. Both open up to RTD about their hopes for their children, but also about the obstacles in their way. Can they break the cycle, or are the decks stacked against them?
