For centuries, there has been friction between the police and the Black community. In this compelling seventeen-part series entitled ‘The NEW Conversation’ the origins of this conflict are revealed as Dwayne Bryant takes viewers on an informative and evocative journey through centuries of American history illuminating this age-old conflict.
Dwayne will discuss many topics at length including slave patrols, the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, and much more. Viewers will come away from the experience understanding how US policies and US presidents have taken intentional action leading to the criminalization of Black men, resulting in poor educational systems, inferior housing, and an unjust criminal ‘justice system’. The need for police reform will be discussed and the audience will be introduced to the various organizations that are leading this charge. The concept of how media and music have aided in this perfect storm of dehumanization will also be covered.

According to a recent Statista Poll, most Americans (94% Black, 75% Hispanic, 70% White, 92% Democrat, 55% Republican) recognize systemic problems within the police force particularly inappropriate treatment of Black citizens by the police.
