Race in America

WKNO WILL BROADCAST A SERIES OF FILMS AND NEW SPECIALS FOCUSED ON RACE IN AMERICA.

“As a media system that serves every person in America, we stand with the Black community, and we stand against racism and hate," said Paula Kerger, President & CEO of PBS.

"In the coming days and weeks, we will use our national reach and community presence to deepen understanding, foster conversation and enable meaningful change. And we will continue to stand behind our courageous journalists, whose unwavering commitment to speak truth to power is essential to the strength of our democracy.”
