Premieres Monday, February 23 @ 8/7c on Investigation Discovery.
For more than 30 years, Emmy-winning journalist, documentary filmmaker, and Al Jazeera America anchor Tony Harris has reported on senseless and vicious acts of violence, many fueled by intolerance, fear and hate. In the new one-hour special HATE IN AMERICA, Harris partners with The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a non-profit that has been tracking hate groups across the country since 1971, and NBC News’ award-winning production arm Peacock Productions, to examine the current realities of intolerance in America.
HATE IN AMERICA features the racially charged murder of a black father in Mississippi who died after being beaten and run over; the gruesome mass shooting of a Wisconsin Sikh congregation; and a brutal anti-gay attack on the streets of New York City. Harris travels to these communities torn apart by violence and pulls back the curtain on what drives modern-day hate, by coming face to face with its victims to examine HATE IN AMERICA, premiering on Monday, February 23 at 8/7c only on Investigation Discovery.
