Take Another Look: an 8-Part Docuseries
Glimpses into moments of high racial tension
Based on the true story of an African-American man who was accused of fitting the description of a bank robber in the modern-day South. Uncover how an innocent individual can become entangled in a life-altering moment simply due to a physical description with some similarities.
Episode One (Pilot): The Wrong Description
THE WRONG DESCRIPTION depicts the real-life outcomes of how racial profiling and excessive violence impact innocent individuals within the African-American community.
Law enforcement, without any knowledge or regard for a person's character or reputation in their community, can incorrectly assume that a person fits the description of an innocent individual accused of a crime with the only similarity to the actual suspect and themselves being the color of their skin.
We invite you to connect with the main character, JP, and be moved enough by his traumatic experience with the law.
Goals & Objectives
Our hope is that THE WRONG DESCRIPTION provides a thought-provoking context that spurs dialogue around topics of racial profiling and racism, as well as what constitutes both good and bad police work.
Through this unfortunate event, our audience will gain knowledge of how an individual can, in a split second, find themselves in a life-altering event that could be merely based on a wrong and preconceived judgment.
We believe situations like these are avoidable in the future and let’s start working through these issues with real-life situations like this one as a platform for discussion, educating and healing.
Each episode (~50 mins) has five segments, three of which require speakers who are willing to be on camera and participate in this project. The segments include:
- Introduction – the main character of the episode (who the story is about)
- Retelling / re-enactment – the events that took place (actors)
- What went wrong – recap of the situation (speaker needed)
- Cultural component – educational content (speaker needed)
- Hero tribute – connection to a historical figure in civil rights / social justice (speaker needed)
