being Black in America with Angela Rye

After months of protesting, petitions and legislation passed in the fight towards racial equality in the United States, Will Smith joins political commentator and friend Angela Rye to talk about the policing and bias in America.


A tough but important conversation

Smith talks about his upbringing in Philadelphia and being called racial slurs by police, yet going to a predominately white Catholic school where his peers were happy to see the police. In the interview, he addresses recent events by saying:

"Peaceful protests put up a mirror to the demonic imagery of your oppressor."

Even after fame, Will Smith talks about wanting to play a key role in emancipation. He wants to educate children and is pledging his devotion to the community evolution and creating the greatest harmony we can.
