PBS’ BLACK AMERICA SINCE MLK: AND STILL I RISE embarks on a journey through the last fifty years of African American history.  Joined by leading scholars, celebrities, and a dynamic cast of people who shaped these years, Henry Louis Gates Jr. travels from the victories of the civil rights movement up to today, asking profound questions about the state of black America — and our nation as a whole. 
 
Episode 4 deals with the significance of the election of Barack Obama and the difficulties  he faced as a black president, as well as the shooting and police response to peaceful protest of Michael Brown and the Black Lives Matter movement.
