New Episodes Premiere Every Thursday; Season Finale January 26

Tackling deep-seated societal issues like systemic racism, generational oppression, climate change, gender identity and abortion, the show sheds a light on broken systems, antiquated beliefs, and harmful misconceptions standing in the way of forward motion. In thought provoking, and sometimes fantastical ways, the series serves to shake the collective conscience into acknowledging uncomfortable truths and recognizing we can no longer afford to stand idly by while agents of destruction, be they government forces, the media, or our very own selves, risk driving society at large aground. The show reminds us the stakes are too high and the ramifications too ominous not to stand up and make noise.

Cast: Eric Benet, Frank Oakley III, Shiquita James, Cherrie McRae and Emily Hall
