Introducing Systemic: A Show About Reform

Since the death of George Floyd in 2020, America has been searching its soul over questions of racial injustice. Many people are looking for solutions to change a police culture that disproportionately harms people of color. They're asking hard questions about what should be done to reform law enforcement. To capture this defining moment, we followed a group of people across the U.S., working to change police departments from the outside and within. Systemic — hosted and produced by Jo Erickson (In The Dark, 74 Seconds) — is built on a unique collection of audio diaries and interviews gathered over the past year. You'll hear the voices of Black police officers and activists from Colorado, Minnesota and beyond. For them, silence is not an option. The four-part audio documentary from Colorado Public Radio (On Something, Since Columbine, Back From Broken) launches May 19.
