'Black-ish' Episode About Police Brutality Re-Airs Amid Protests

An old, yet sadly timely episode of Black-ish is airing again.

“It’s been 1,562 days since we first shared that episode with the world and it breaks my heart on so many levels that this episode feels just as timely as it did then and eerily prescient to what’s happening to black people in this country today,” he wrote on Instagram.

“Black rights are human rights, and this continued injustice impacts all of us. So while we hope these episodes can bring your families together in watching and learning, the real hope is that it inspires you to join us in demanding liberty and justice for all – once and for all.”

Here’s a plot summary: “‘Hope’ centers on the Johnson family reacting to a court case involving a black teenager who was allegedly a victim of police violence. Dre (Anthony Anderson) and Bow (Tracee Ellis Ross) are then at odds about how to discuss the situation with their kids when they start asking questions about it. While one parent wants to discuss the tarnished legal system and how it treats black people, the other wants to take a more hopeful approach.”
