Please watch this 2019 docudrama (available on Netflix) and then join the online discussion, facilitated by Rob and Janne Eller-Isaacs, on September 11.
Based on the Broadway play, American Son follows Kerry Washington and Steven Pasquale as an estranged couple whose son goes missing. The couple spends the night at a Miami police station in search of answers about their missing son, Jamel. With themes of police brutality and unconscious bias, American Son showcases the treatment of the families of victims and the system’s failure to aid Black families in the aftermath of a murder.
