Jay Z continues to shows why he is the culture’s leading innovator with his latest project. Hov is bringing a new documentary series about race and inequality to the National Geographic channel. In a political climate when the higher-ups seem to stay silent about societies growing racial tension in black communities, Hov demands to bring it to the forefront.
National Geographic has signed off on a six-part docu-series that focus on inequalities within the black community. “Race With Jay Z<" will discuss the criminal justice system, wealth inequality, and activism in the age of social media. Some may argue that this type of attention on these issues are needed more than ever following the presidential election. Jay Z has partnered with The Weinstein Company to bring this vision to light. Harvey Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Company, had this to say in a press release on Wednesday.
“National Geographic and Jay Z are the world’s foremost storytellers in their own right, and we’re thrilled to be working with them on such an evocative and meaningful project, by using highly cinematic storytelling techniques along with Jay Z’s singular point of view, the series will tell a dramatic, thought-provoking story on race in America.”
