Jay Z to produce documentary on the racial injustices in America

Jay Z is one the most influential people in Hollywood at this point. The record-producer and rapper consistently uses his platform to talk about socially relevant and important stories.

He has once again upped the game and is in work to produce a new documentary covering the racial bias and injustice in America. The documentary is going to be created for National Geographic, in a six-episode series.

The documentary will talk about the discrimination in the criminal justice system, wealth inequality and the active role social media plays in influencing the minds of young people.

The co-chairman of Weinstein Company, Harvey Weinstein was quoted as saying:

“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.”

It was also previously reported that the superstar is also producing a doc on Trayvon Martin.

More power to him!
