A two-hour documentary airing from 9-11 p.m. on PBS (Check local listings.), is about the increasingly common conversation taking place in homes and communities across the country between parents of color and their children, especially sons, about how to behave if they are ever stopped by the police. The documentary takes a unique approach to "the talk," offering six personal stories to illustrate the issue from multiple points of view, parent, child, the police, and the community to ensure diverse perspectives are represented. Features include Samaria Rice (mother of Tamir Rice), Nas, Rosie Perez, Kenya Barris (black*ish), John Singleton, Charles Blow, The New York Times columnist, retired NYPD sergeant Trevena Garel, and the Ramirez family, whose 28-year-old son, Oscar, was shot and killed by a Los Angeles County sheriff in Paramount, California, a community southeast of Los Angeles.
