Profiled, a documentary by Kathleen Foster, knits together the stories of the families and supporters of Black and Latin youth murdered by the police into a powerful indictment of racial profiling and police brutality. Foster places these devastating stories into context by examining the roots of racism in the United States.
The panel discussion follows the screening, focusing on organizing and bringing communities together around these important issues.
