To Be An American: Identity, Race and Justice, featuring a wide array of thought leaders from across the nation, is a special project from Matter of Fact with Soledad O’Brien, the nation’s public affairs program, produced by Hearst Television.
Viewers will be taken on a tour across the middle of the country from Denver to Kansas City on I-70 to meet and engage some of the diverse cross-section of Americans that help define the nation. They will also be asked to consider the ways our diverse country interprets “belonging” and “allegiance.”
“As local broadcasters, it is our responsibility to be the voice for the voiceless,” says Dan Joerres, WBAL’s general manager.
“We are hopeful that through incredible storytelling, we will be able to help close the racial divide in our society by further educating and inspiring.”
