Reggie Yates: Race Riots USA

A fire is raging in the hearts of African Americans. The shooting of an unarmed black teenager by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, has led to the worst race riots in a decade.

One year on from the shooting, Reggie Yates visits the Missouri town for this powerful documentary to investigate where these seismic events have left the local community.

Shocking images of American police brutalising and killing black people have politicised a new generation of young activists.

Reggie asks both black and white citizens of Ferguson if a community so polarised by the shooting of Michael Brown can ever come together and heal. He witnesses the next generation of police officers being trained and discovers just how the system still discriminates against African Americans, leaving him asking how in a time when the country is lead by an African American President, young black men are still 21 times as likely to be killed by police as white men of the same age.
