“DISRUPT AND DISMANTLE” AIRS SUNDAY ON BET

“Disrupt & Dismantle” follows Soledad O’Brien as she tackles injustices across the nation affecting the Black community, from police brutality to redlining to school to prison pipeline, to the infant mortality crisis fueled by systemic racism. This timely new series will take an active and hard-edged approach to chopping away at the roots of racism. In each episode, O’Brien will identify an issue within a particular community, then she will go out into the field and investigate. She’ll immerse herself in the community, identify the problems and the problematic people, then speak truth to power.
