Program Number


Series Description

FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.

Program Description

A powerful, intimate journey into America's racial divide. For 16 weeks, behind a two-way mirror in a small room at the US military's intensive race relations course, a dozen Americans -- black, white and Hispanic -- confront each other with their racial anger, pain and bewilderment. This group's dramatic struggle poses the vital question: Can America overcome its racial conflicts and make equality work? Filmed at DEOMI (Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute) at Patrick Air Force Base in Cocoa Beach, FL.
