There was a lot of energy flowing this past Friday at 7 pm, when hundreds of people gathered at the Kingdom Builders’ Center (KBC), 6011 West Orem Drive, Houston, TX, to view the advanced free screening of the highly-anticipated documentary “THE INJUSTICE FILES: HOOD OF SUSPICION.”
The documentary, which features racial profiling victim Robbie Tolan and his family, made its world premiere this past Wednesday, February 13 at 7 PM (CST) on the Investigation Discovery (ID) Network; a mystery-and-suspense network, but an advance viewing of the documentary was provided to attendees at the KBC, thanks to a request by Tolan.
Tolan requested that the documentary be shown at the KBC, so he could show his love and appreciation to the church family who prayed for him and his family during his ordeal.
In his new installment, “THE INJUSTICE FILES: HOOD OF SUSPICION,” Emmy-nominated filmmaker and Executive Producer/Host of The Injustice Files, Keith Beauchamp, goes on an in-depth investigation of modern day racial profiling practices, by looking at three distinct cases that illustrate how self-defense practices discriminate against African-Americans.
Beauchamp flew into town to thank the Tolan family for their participation in the project and to officially introduce the advanced screening of the documentary to attendees. Pastor Kirbyjon Caldwell, Senior Pastor of Windsor Village United Methodist Church, kicked off the program off by welcoming everyone to the KBC and thanking God for Tolan still being alive.
Tolan took to the microphone and thanked the Windsor Village family for praying for him and his family, while speaking out against racial profiling. After showing the documentary to the attendees, Beauchamp took questions from the audience and some lively discussion surrounding racial profiling ensued. Several attendees expressed disappointment in the justice system, sharing details of how they were mistreated by law enforcement and the justice system. Others called on law enforcement and elected officials to create a Civilian Review Board with subpoena powers.
Other show times for the documentary should be coming soon, so for more information please visit http://investigation.discovery.com/tv-shows/injustice-files.
