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

Wilmington on Fire (trailer)

The Wilmington Massacre was a bloody attack on the African-American community by a heavily armed white mob with the support of the North Carolina Democratic Party on November 10, 1898 in the port city of Wilmington, North Carolina. It is considered one of the only successful examples of a coup d'état in the United States that left countless numbers of African-American citizens dead and exiled from the city. This event was the spring board for the white supremacy movement and Jim Crow segregation throughout the state of North Carolina and the American South. “Wilmington on Fire” gives a compelling historical and present day look at this event showing how the violent overthrow of an existing government not only cemented white supremacy in the city of Wilmington and the state of North Carolina but also throughout the United States of America. © 2011 Christopher Everett You can buy or rent 'Wilmington on Fire' on Vimeo on Demand at bit.ly/2eJW5Yq You can also pre-order the DVD at bit.ly/2eo0KOk

INEQUALITY FOR ALL - Official Trailer

A passionate argument on behalf of the middle class, INEQUALITY FOR ALL features Robert Reich—professor, best-selling author, and Clinton cabinet member—as he demonstrates how the widening income gap has a devastating impact on the American economy. The film is an intimate portrait of a man who's overcome a great deal of personal adversity and whose lifelong goal remains protecting those who are unable to protect themselves. Through his singular perspective, Reich explains how the massive consolidation of wealth by a precious few threatens the viability of the American workforce and the foundation of democracy itself. In this INCONVENIENT TRUTH for the economy, Reich uses humor and a wide array of facts to explain how the issue of economic inequality affects each and every one of us.

Black Lives: Agents of Change. Failing schools versus community education in America

See more Black Lives series here - www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBRLKmBip431NY_yQIbTekXjzr6C8FbM9 In Black America, children are often raised in run-down areas, surrounded by crime. Local schools are underfunded and do not give students the skills to break the cycle of drugs-violence-jail. But the community is now finding its own solutions to this education crisis. In Philadelphia, high school dropout Steven Stewart is getting a second chance to graduate through YESPhilly, an alternative high school. He also learns to responsibly handle guns through Black Guns Matter, an organisation bringing Second Amendment rights to African Americans. Meanwhile, New York high school students acquire useful legal and media skills as they stage Black Lives Matter protests.

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

See more Black Lives series here - www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBRLKmBip431NY_yQIbTekXjzr6C8FbM9 A majority of African American children are brought up by a single parent, usually a teenage mother. Two-thirds grow up in low-income families with less than the minimum amount of income needed for the necessities of life. In Episode 6, RTD meets Jimmy, a high school dropout who fathered a child as a teenager, and Miracle, a nurse for elderly patients who became a single mother following her divorce. Both want to protect their children, but can they give their children the stability they need while on their current paths? RTD hears from those raised without proper parenting about family instability, job prospects destroyed by criminal convictions, and the vital but flawed welfare system that keeps many Black families alive, but poor.
