Summary, etc.:
Directed by Oscar nominated and NAACP Image Award winning filmmaker David Massey, this dynamic documentary explores why so many unarmed black people have been targeted and killed by police officers. The filmmakers talk to legal experts, local activists, and law enforcement officials who discuss the inequality within our justice system and who confront the crucial question of how to prevent more violence in the country, including black on black deaths. As the Black Lives Matter movement -- and citizens nationwide -- question the accountability of our justice system in cases of police violence, When Justice Isn't Just is an essential addition to the ongoing discussion about reform and renewal.
