In the wake of George Floyd’s killing and calls for change, historian & New Yorker writer Jelani Cobb examines the prospects for police reform through one city’s story.
Four years after he covered policing in Newark, New Jersey in FRONTLINE’s documentary “Policing the Police,” Cobb returns to the city to see how federally-mandated reform efforts there have fared — and what lessons might apply nationwide. “Policing the Police 2020,” supported by The WNET Group’s initiative “Chasing the Dream,” is a powerful look at the intersection of race and policing in America in 2020.
