ABC will be rebroadcasting episodes of black-ish tonight in an effort to bring people together and “say as humankind enough is enough.” This comes from a post from black-ish showrunner Kenya Barris on Instagram. ABC will air two episodes of the show, Hope and Juneteenth. Hope addresses police brutality. Juneteenth focuses on the end of slavery in the United States.
Barris continued on saying that “Black rights are human rights, and this continued injustice impacts all of us. So while we hope these episodes can bring your families together in watching and learning, the real hope is that it inspires you to join us in demanding liberty and justice for all — once and for all.”
The presentation of black-ish comes after The Walt Disney Company and many of its subsidiaries made a statement to its Cast Members against racial injustice and committed to constructively continue the conversation and seek solutions. This comes after the killing of George Floyd. The Walt Disney Company will also match donations by Cast Members to recognized non-profit organizations they wish to support.
Hope airs tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific on ABC, followed immediately by Juneteenth at 8:30 p.m.
