"Race Matters" on the PBS NewsHour

As part of its "Race Matters" initiative, partially funded by the Foundation, the PBS NewsHour is producing a series of broadcasts examining race relations and racial discrimination.  Hosted by Charlayne Hunter-Gault, this initiative also includes opportunities for viewers to converse with Hunter-Gault and other experts over social media and is producing a syllabus on the subject of race, with recommended readings for elementary, high school, and college students.
