About this show

In Broadbend, Arkansas, an African-American family grapples with decades of inequality, violence, and oppression in the South. As the 60's civil rights movement grips the nation, a nursing home orderly delicately balances his role as caregiver to an ornery white resident with that as provider for his own family. Thirty years later, his daughter struggles to understand an incident of police brutality against her 15-year-old son. Spanning nearly half a century and three generations, Broadbend, Arkansas contemplates the cycle of violence in our country and the struggle to find hope and create change against a backdrop of hate that plagues America.
